A pale, pink home with contrasting, black shutters sits along 5 Pitt Street in Charleston. Its window boxes overflow with colorful flowers, vibrant like the women who once lived there. An historical marker tells their story.
"Hello, we are the Pollitzer sisters," the recording says. "Carrie, Mabel and Anita."
It goes on to describe how the sisters grew up in Charleston during the end of the 19th century when women had no voice, no vote and no equal rights. But that didn't stop them.
