Chapter Upstate New York
Artist Statement This poster honors Susan B. Anthony, and the many other women who suffered in the name of suffrage. Anthony dared to vote in the 1872 presidential election, testing the reach of the recently passed 14th amendment. Ultimately, Anthony was arrested and found guilty. At her sentencing, Anthony made a number of statements to the presiding judge and the court including, “Your denial of my citizen’s right to vote, is the denial of my rights of consent as one of the governed, the denial of my right of representation as one of the taxed, the denial of my right to a trial by a jury of my peers as an offender against the law, therefore, the denial of my sacred rights to life, liberty, property and –” Like many other women, Anthony fought hard for women’s rights her entire life, but did not live to legally vote. Exercising your right to vote, in any election, honors the work and hardship of our foremothers, like Susan B. Anthony.
