FC: The Life of Susan B. Anthony.
2: November 1st, 1872. Just like any man I have the right to vote. The fourteenth amendment said so! "All persons born and naturalized in the United States...are citizens of the United States," Does this not mean I am a citizen since I was born here? What makes a man better than I? Justice i s blind, why is my vote not? Does it matter if a man or woman votes for someone? As a natural born citizen, this is my right and I'll be damned if women after me are not allowed to vote. "I have been resolved for three years to vote at the first election when I had been home for thirty days before."I will never pay the fine for such atrocity. If I must be arrested for expressing my right then there must be no Constitution at all! Organize, agitate, educate MUST be our war cry! The people will see when I deliver my speech. I shall work on it in prison if I must but I will give women suffrage. No longer will our kind be told to quiet down and act proper. We will become our own person, just as equal as any man who had discovered this country. Any country that does not support the rights of women must be a corrupt country indeed. Until we meet again, Susan B. Anthony
3: October 12 1873 The throng of citizens, cold and accusing, glaring up at me did not cause me to flinch. For I had my sisters behind me, supporting everything we stand for: The rights of women. Elizabeth Cady Stanton and I made an excellent team. With her extensive vocabulary and powerful words, she could break the hearts of millions with our newspaper, The Revolution. With my funding, we managed to spread our word of how women should be treated equally, how slavery should be abolished. Equal rights for men and women of all skin types and classes! "It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens; nor yet we, the male citizens; but we, the whole people, who formed the Union. And we formed it, not to give the blessings of liberty, but to secure them; not to the half of ourselves and the half of our posterity, but to the whole people — women as well as men." So I will fight for this right, my legacy shall live on. The names of Elizabeth and I shall be written in history books as the leaders of women's rights! By god will this revolution begin. Until we meet again, Susan B. Anthony
