    Read the following passage: When, in 1871, I asked . . . [Senator Sumner] to declare the power of the United States Constitution to protect women in their right to vote as he had done for black men he handed me a copy of all his speeches during that reconstruction period, and said: "Put 'sex' where I have 'race' or 'color,' and you have here the best and strongest argument I can make for woman."

    "There is not a doubt but women have the constitutional right to vote, and I will never vote for a Sixteenth Amendment to guarantee it to them." That is from the passage. From this, what can you infer?

    Not necessarily. It is A in my opinion, because he is saying that women do have the constitutional right to vote, but he will not vote for it.

    Question 4 of 5 Multiple Choice: Please select the best answer and click "submit." Read the following passage: The only question left to be settled now is: Are women persons? I scarcely believe any of our opponents will have the hardihood to say they are not. Being persons, then, women are citizens, and no State has a right to make any new law, or to enforce any old law, which shall abridge their privileges or immunities. Hence, every discrimination against women in the constitutions and laws of the several States is today null and void, precisely as is every one against negroes. Susan B. Anthony, "Speech After Being Convicted of Voting" In the passage, which two important issues does Susan B. Anthony connect? A. The costs of the Revolutionary War and the Civil War B. Women's suffrage and the struggles of black people C. States' rights and the rights of the federal government D. The rights to equal pay and public health care

    Think of how women were treated back then, and also, read the last sentence. Put those two together and you'll find your answer.
