    "Friends and fellow citizens: I stand before you tonight under indictment for the alleged crime of having voted at the last presidential election, without having a lawful right to vote. It shall be my work this evening to prove to you that in thus doing, I not only committed no crime, but, instead, simply exercised my citizen's rights, guaranteed to me and all United States citizens by the National Constitution, beyond the power of any State to deny." That is the first paragraph. In my opinion, this paragraph states what the purpose is overall of her speech. I would say A.

    Think of what she mainly talks about in her speech. Shes simply stating that she believes in equality of rights, and in this particular speech, voting.

    Your first answer was more accurate. The answer in my opinion would be B. She is making it clear that women should be able to vote, and refers to women being citizens as well.
