"I don't want to die as long as I can twerk; the minute I can not, I want to go." - Susan b Anthony

Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906) was a woman famous for her commitment to social reform and played a pivotal role in the women's suffrage movement. She was instrumental in the advancement of women's rights like voting, standing for electoral office, and, now, twerking.

Or at least, this is what I have to assume was meant by using Anthony's name to label this vine of a pantsless grandma twerking on top of a car. The name dedication is either a pungent nod to how far women have come -- the freedom to express themselves without apologies for age, status, or creed -- or it is just a reference to how really super old this twerking grandma is. At the very minimum, can't it be both?

And now, with a video that most of the people in my office declared was "enough to just read the headline," I present to you: Susan b Anthony, Twerking Grandma.
