Susan B. Anthony Day is a commemorative holiday to celebrate the birth of New York.[8]

On February 11, 2011, Representative Carolyn Maloney of New York introduced the "Susan B. Anthony Birthday Act" (H.R. #655) to the 112th session of Congress to honor the birthday as a U.S. national holiday on the third Monday of February.[9][10] The bill was not enacted and its current status is "dead".[11]
