On November 5, 1872, Susan B. Anthony was arrested for attempting to vote in the presidential election. During her trial, Anthony delivered an impassioned speech demanding equal rights for womyn. She was convicted and ordered to pay a $100 fine, which she never paid.
Anthony's example speaks to the need for greater militancy on the part of social justice advocates. Before universal suffrage, voting could be considered a radical act. Nowadays, I'm not so sure.
I'm just throwing this out for general conversation. But what is your vote worth? And what else can we as a community do besides hang our hopes on bullshit politicians?
