American suffragette Susan B. Anthony delivered this speech countless times during the 1880s. In it, she explains the direct correlation between disenfranchisement and poverty. She describes how giving working class men the vote had led to consistent improvements in legislation protecting working class people. Anthony makes a compelling case that self-supporting working-class women, however, still faced major disparities in rights across the board because they lacked "the ballot, that symbol of perfect equality."Show more
After voting in the 1872 presidential election, suffragette Susan B. Anthony was arrested and charged with a $100 fine. She refused to pay it, instead embarking on a speaking tour around the U.S. to advocate for women's legal right to vote. In this fiery speech she memorably stated, "It was we, the people; not we, the white male citizens . . . who formed the Union." Anthony argued that the fight for women's right to vote was also a fight for their right to personhood in the eyes of the state, something women were finally granted nearly fifty years later.Show more
