Happy International Women’s Day! Let’s take a moment and appreciate how far we’ve come—first, with a series of letters by Susan B. Anthony. She writes about voting illegally in the 1872 federal election and encourages other women to do the same. There is also an extraordinary letter on Letters of Note today, in which Abigail Adams warns to her husband John of rebellion unless women are given more power.
