Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906), U.S. suffragist. As quoted in Feminism: The Essential Historical Writings, part 3, by Miriam Schnier (1972).
Said by the famous woman suffrage leader in federal court on June 18, 1873, upon its being judged that she "did knowingly, wrongfully and unlawfully vote for a Representative in the Congress of the United States"; the case was United States vs. Susan B. Anthony. This was the last statement she made in court that day. American women would not gain the right to vote for another forty-seven years.
