Because of Women Like Her

On Election Day, 2016, thousands made a pilgrimage to the grave of leading suffragist Susan B. Anthony, to celebrate the promise of a woman being elected as president of the United States for the first time in history. “Because of Women Like Her” captures a remarkable day of hope, reflection and solidarity.
