Fact of the Day: Susanna Salter

Susanna Salter was elected as the first female mayor of any town/city decades before women could even vote in 1887. As mayor of Argonia, Kansas she was met with some opposition to those who did not want "petticoat rule". She did not seek re-election by the time her turn was over.

  2. She must not have been popular with the men in Argonia, understandable back in those day I guess.
