Josephine K. Henry, U.S. suffragist. As quoted in History of Woman Suffrage, vol. 4, ch. 15, by Susan B. Anthony and Ida Husted Harper (1902).
Said at the twenty-seventh annual convention of the National Woman Suffrage Association, held January 31-February 5, 1895, in Atlanta, Georgia, in response to Susan B. Anthony's observation that politicians hesitated to grant the vote to women because they were "an unknown quantity." Henry was a representative from Kentucky.
