With the passage of the Fourteenth Amendment in 1868, and its plain language implication that women, as citizens, had the right to vote, master strategist Susan B. Anthony decided to test the Constitution. She, her sister Mary, and fourteen other Rochester women registered, and then voted in the 1872 federal election, resulting in Anthony’s arrest, trial, and conviction. Front page news across the country, this real-life Rochester drama gave Susan B. Anthony the deserved reputation as the most effective advocate and leader of the woman suffrage movement.
