The 19th amendment, guaranteeing American women the right to vote, was ratified 95 years ago this month.

The Susan B. Anthony Center at the University of Rochester is marking the occasion by starting a social medial campaign to familiarize people with the suffragist's thoughts on a  number of social issues, such as domestic violence, racism and mental health.

Students poured through a collection of Susan B. Anthony's letters to find some pearls of wisdom and will be sharing them over the next ten months with the Twitter hashtag #SueBSays and on the center's Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/URSBAC?fref=ts
