That's the house belonging to one of the original feminist suffragettes. The woman on the one dollar coin. And like the original feminists, anti-abortion.
It was purchased by Carol Crossed, the original director of the Seamless Garment Network (now known as Consistent Life) and involved with numerous prolife organizations.
It's a bit of a coup for Feminists for Life of America. See here open book: Feminists for Life makes a move.. and here Feminists for Life of America - Pro Woman Pro Life
While Feminists for Life of America will not own the house, the pro-life feminist organization will manage and care for the birthplace. FFL’s national office will remain in the Washington, D.C., area. A panel of experts will be assembled to determine the best use for the dwelling. Others who care about Susan B. Anthony will be provided a means to contribute ideas.
Feminists for Life continues the tradition of Susan B. Anthony and other early American suffragists who fought for women and children—born and unborn.
“Susan B. Anthony challenged us to address the root causes that drive women to abortion—the same problems that face women who parent today,” said FFL President Serrin M. Foster. FFL is dedicated to systematically eliminating the reasons that drive women to abortion—lack of practical resources and support—by challenging the status quo. “Women deserve better than abortion,” she added.
Feminists for Life uniquely works with people on both sides of a contentious debate to redirect energy toward woman-centered solutions. FFL focuses primarily on college campuses to address the unmet needs of pregnant and parenting students, including housing, child care, maternity coverage and telecommuting options. FFL’s College Outreach Program inspired federal legislation currently being considered, the Elizabeth Cady Stanton Pregnancy and Parenting Act. Stanton, together with Anthony, led the first women’s movement.
FFL has also worked alongside other women’s organizations for the passage of the Violence Against Women Act, for enhanced child support enforcement and against the child exclusion provisions in welfare reform. FFL also championed Laci and Connor’s Law, as well as health care coverage for poor and pregnant women through the State Child Health Insurance Program.
“We are thrilled and grateful that Carol Crossed stepped forward to buy Susan B. Anthony’s birthplace,” said Foster. Feminists for Life recognized Crossed in 2003 year as a “Remarkable Pro-Life Woman.” Crossed lives in Rochester, New York, the home of Susan B Anthony during her later years of activism.
