This Limited Edition Faux Alligator Bag Has a Purpose!
100 percent of the profits of the Ms. Anthony faux alligator bag goes to the Susan B. Anthony Museum and House.
Some of you may not know who Susan B. Anthony was, but the suffragette played a very important role in women getting the vote. Not only did she work with Elizabeth Cady Stanton and other early feminists to get voting rights for women, she was also a social and civil rights activist. Susan B. Anthony joined the abolition movement, became a labor activist and persuaded the University of Rochester to admit women back in 1900.
A Massachusetts native, she ended her days in Rochester, New York where her home has become a national museum.
This gorgeous bag; the Ms. Anthony ($250, susanbanthonyhouse.org) is modeled after Susan B. Anthony’s signature one that she carried everywhere–even to court! It was designed by the Abigail Riggs Collection. 100 percent of the proceeds of this roomy faux alligator satchel goes to the Susan B. Anthony House and its programs. There were only 2,000 made, each of them are numbered. The bag features two of Susan B. Anthony’s famous quotes. A plate that says, “Failure is impossible” is on the back of the bag. Her other quote, “Every woman needs a purse of her own” is stamped on the reverse side of the Abigail Riggs bee emblem.

When you buy one of these great bags for fall (or use it any season), you automatically get a membership to the museum too. You can make a fashion statement while commemorating one of this country’s women who made it possible for all of us to vote.
