Susan B. Anthony (1820–1906), U.S. suffragist. As quoted in Life and Work of Susan B. Anthony, vol. 3, ch. 62, by Ida Husted Harper (1908).
Written to a political committee in 1902 upon receipt of a post card reminding her to register to vote; it had been sent to S. B. Anthony under the erroneous assumption that, as head of household, "S. B." must be a man. Her message was widely reprinted by newspapers, one headlining its front-page story: "Susan B. Anthony Scores One." (Anthony had refused to pay the $100 fine imposed upon her thirty years earlier, because she did not recognize her action as properly illegal.).
