Womyn's music and music by women

 

“Forget conventionalisms; forget what the world thinks of
you stepping out of your place; think your best thoughts,
speak your best words, work your best works,
looking to your own conscience for approval.” 
Honor Susan B. Anthony this Women’s History Month!
Given the work that she and so many others
did to move history forward, please consider celebrating this year’s National Women’s History Month (March) in her honor

and the honor of the countless trailblazing women who have paved the way for all of us.
Susan B. Anthony began her life-long campaign for woman suffrage when she met Elizabeth Cady Stanton in 1852. Together they organized the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA) in 1869. Anthony edited its newspaper and traveled extensively, organizing new members and lecturing on issues around woman suffrage. When committed people work for justice, she said, “Failure is Impossible.” The Nineteenth Amendment, passed in 1920,was also called the “Anthony Amendment” in tribute to the tireless work of this great crusader.
