President Donald Trump announced he will posthumously pardon for Susan B Anthony, a suffrage movement leader found guilty of illegally voting as a woman in 1872.

Trump made the announcement alongside first lady Melania Trump, wearing white, at a White House event commemorating the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment — which ensured women the right to vote. It was ratified on Aug. 18, 1920, 14 years after Anthony died.
