Taken straight from my friend Linh Chia's Facebook post which is not public and thus not linked. Please keep these in mind while waxing poetic about the 19th amendment and the suffragettes.
  1. "I will cut off this right arm of mine before I will ever work or demand the ballot for the Negro and not the woman."
    Susan B. Anthony
  2. "You did not wait for woman suffrage but disenfranchised both your black and white women thus making them politically equal. You have put the ballot in the hands of black men, thus making them political superiors of white women. Never before in the history of the world have men made former slaves the political masters of their former mistresses!"
    Anna Howard Shaw
  3. "The enfranchisement of women would insure immediate and durable white supremacy, honestly attained, for upon unquestioned authority it is stated that in every southern State but one there are more educated women than all the illiterate voters, white and black, native and foreign, combined."
    "As you probably know, of all the women in the South who can read and write, ten out of every eleven are white. When it comes to the proportion of property between the races, that of the white outweighs that of the black immeasurably.” - Belle Kearney
  4. “What will we and our daughters suffer if these degraded black men are allowed to have the rights that would make them even worse than our Saxon fathers?”
    Elizabeth Cady Stanton
  5. “The white men, reinforced by the educated white women, could ‘snow under’ the Negro vote in every State, and the white race would maintain its supremacy without corrupting or intimidating the Negroes.”
    Laura Clay
  6. “Alien illiterates rule our cities today; the saloon is their palace, and the toddy stick their scepter. The colored race multiplies like the locusts of Egypt.”
    Frances Willard
  7. "White supremacy will be strengthened, not weakened, by women’s suffrage.”
    Carrie Chapman Catt
  8. “I do not want to see a negro man walk to the polls & vote on who should handle my tax money while I myself cannot vote at all. When there is not enough religion in the pulpit to organize a crusade against sin; nor justice in the court house to promptly punish crime; nor manhood enough in the nation to put a sheltering arm about innocence & virtue"
    “If it needs lynching to protect woman’s dearest possession from the ravening human beasts—-then I say lynch, a thousand times a week if necessary.” - Rebecca Ann Latimer Felton
