In her speech, she points out that the government is supposed to protect people and their rights. But instead, since women aren't given any rights and representation, laws are being made by males alone. And then women are forced to obey whatever laws are made and taxed without any representation. The word "We the People' does not only include "white males" but rather everyone born and brought up in America, including women. So, if she (women) is to be tried and punished like men under the laws made by the men, then she (women) should also be given equal rights.

Susan B. Anthony was put under trial under the US government for actively participating to vote in the elections. She was an active leader of the woman suffrage movement. She gave the famous speech Is It a Crime for a Citizen of the United States to Vote? In which she put her arguments related to the discrimination which the women were facing because of men. She argues that the law has been made by the men and the pronouns used in the written laws too constitute of the masculine. Women, on the other hand, have never been included while framing these laws. But if a woman is found guilty, she becomes liable to follow the laws made by the men. She also talks about her reason for being put in trial. Her crime as per the law of the government was that she wanted to exercise the right to vote which is a woman she was prohibited from. She tells about the Hippocratic nature of the men and the judicial system. Her warrant included the masculine pronouns but the clerk of court made some changes in it. He altered the masculine pronouns to that of the feminine. Her final argument was that if women were liable to get punished as men under the laws made by men, then equal rights should be imparted to women.
1. read the following excerpt from franklin d. roosevelt's "fireside chat 19":
on the other side of the picture, we must learn also to know that guerilla warfare against the germans in, let us say serbia or norway, us; that a successful russian offensive against the germans us; and that british successes on land or sea in any part of the world strengthen our hands.
remember always that germany and italy, regardless of any formal declaration of war, consider themselves at war with the united states at this moment just as much as they consider themselves at war with britain or russia. and germany puts all the other republics of the americas into the same category of enemies. the people of our sister republics of this hemisphere can be honored by that fact.
the true goal we seek is far above and beyond the ugly field of battle. when we resort to force, as now we must, we are determined that this force shall be directed toward ultimate good as well as against immediate evil. we americans are not destroyers — we are builders.
