Mayor Lovely Warren and Lieutenant Governor Kathy Hochul honored the 100th anniversary of women's suffrage by recognizing a key Rochester figure who helped make it happen.

During a ceremony Tuesday morning, the mayor and lieutenant governor placed "I Voted" stickers on Susan B. Anthony's grave marker. Last year, thousands of people lined up at the suffragette’s monument at Mount Hope Cemetery to do the same thing, recognizing Hillary Clinton's bid for the presidency.

Mayor Warren wrote in a release, "The 100th Anniversary of Women’s Suffrage in New York State is a reminder of how far we have come as a society, but also, how far we still have to go. We must continue fighting for equality in all walks of life. As Susan B. Anthony taught us, ‘Failure is Impossible.’”

Warren faces Republican Tony Micciche, Green Party candidate Alex White and Independent candidate Lori Thomas.
