Happy Anna Howard Shaw Day!

We all know what day this is... but instead of saying Happy Valentine's Day, today we're going to take inspiration from 30 Rock and celebrate the birthdate of Anna Howard Shaw, a leader of the women's suffrage movement in the U.S.

A physician and the first ordained female Methodist minister in the United States, Shaw lead the National American Woman Suffrage Association from 1904 to 1915. During her tenure as president, the organization renewed efforts to lobby for a national constitutional amendment granting women the right to vote. During World War I, Shaw was head of the Women's Committee of the United States Council of National Defense, for which she became the first woman to earn the Distinguished Service Medal.

A Happy Anna Howard Shaw Day to us all!
