About 30 volunteers and staff from the Susan B. Anthony museum headed to France on Saturday for a tribute planned in her honor in Rochester's sister city of Rennes.

The town will dedicate a town square in her honor on Wednesday for International Women's Day. In the 1860s and 70s, Susan B. Anthony paid a few visits who Rennes, who has had a 60-year relationship with Rochester.

"What people don't always realize, especially local people here in Rochester, [is] that not only did Susan B. Anthony change democracy for women in the United States, but she had a vision that all women around the world should have access to education, access to health care, and should be able to participate in the governments that are affecting their lives," says Debra L. Hughes, the museum's president.

The group booked 20 tickets that sold out immediately, forcing them to buy ten more.
