Party Time! Susan B's Birthday! Break out the Champagne!
As a nation, we are deeply indebted to both women for the long hours, grunt work, ridicule, and exhaustion they faced in working toward granting women more money, greater power, and increased dignity. In honor of them, let's all go make some money, bake a cake, or get pregnant.
As a sidenote, while the Susan B. dollar has been made fun of across the country since it's release, the dollars themselves aren't hard to get; in fact, they're used as change in New York City automatic train ticket dispensers.
Pass it on. We honor our foremothers by speaking their names and remembering their devotion to us, the generations that would follow.
