25723 Notes

Dear Tumblr,
This is NOT Susan B. Anthony. This is Ada Wright, a British suffragette who was beaten by police on "Black Friday" in 1910.
Ms. Anthony was arrested on November 5, 1872 for voting in the presidential election (straight GOP ticket) and fined $100. She never paid. She was also never beaten or photographed being beaten.
Great stories don’t need to be manufactured if they’re already great.
Thank you….and regardless the fight undertaken by women (1920), African Americans  (1865 & 1964), Native Americans (1924), and other underrepresented groups for the right to vote is amazing and should be given recognition.
But please, please, please use Google’s reverse image search.
