Susan B. Anthony Legacy Dinner
Saturday, February 8, 2014
Award Ceremony and Dinner
Susan B. Anthony's birthday has been a cause for celebration at the University of Rochester since 1947, when women students first proclaimed February 15th as Susan B. Anthony Day, in honor of the "patron saint of Prince Street women."
In the sixty years since, women students have moved from Prince Street to join the men on the River Campus (1955) and SBA Day has become the Susan B. Anthony Legacy Dinner.
The annual event commemorates Anthony's campaign to win women admission to the University. Awards are presented to the University's leading women; an alumna delivers the Susan B. Anthony Legacy Address; and the transformative story of Anthony's fight for co-education is remembered.
