Opening Doors for Women: The Susan B. Anthony House–A National Historic Landmark, by M. Sharon Salluzzo, is a visually-rich and fact-filled book. Using the framework of a room-by-room tour of the house, Salluzzo packs this compact, 40+-page hardcover volume with anecdotes and history, weaving them together as only an expert storyteller can.
As Salluzzo writes in the Introduction, “For more than a half-century, Susan B. Anthony worked for liberty, justice, and equality. She opened the doors of 17 Madison Street to change mindsets so that “doors of opportunity” would be open to all. For the past seventy-five years, the Susan B. Anthony House has been open to visitors. They come for various reasons, and they leave inspired by the story they hear to continue Anthony’s work toward a more perfect union.”
This hardcover volume features large, full-color photos by celebrated Rochester photographer, Walter Colley, plus seldom-seen archival photos. An exclusive publication of the National Susan B. Anthony Museum & House commemorating its 75th anniversary, the book is 7.5" x 11", hardcover, 40+ pages.
