    No self respecting woman should wish or work for the sucess of a party that ignores her sex. Susan B Anthony quote being held by Alice Paul, (right) and fellow suffragettes. They were protesting the Republican party who were against women getting the vote. The GOP still fighting a war against women's rights.

Suffragette by Theresa Thompson, via Flickr

Susan B Anthony was arrested by a U.S. Deputy Marshal for voting on November 5 in the 1872 Presidential Election two weeks earlier. She had written to Stanton on the night of the election that she had "positively voted the Republican ticket—straight...". She was tried and convicted seven months later. The sentence was a $100 fine, but not imprisonment; true to her word in court ("I shall never pay a dollar of your unjust penalty"), she never paid the fine for the rest of her life.
