The fight for woman suffrage was long and hard-fought by several generations of women. In 1902 Susan B. Anthony inscribed the following to her fellow suffragist Caroline H. Dall in the just completed volume four of The History of Woman Suffrage:

This closes the records of the 19th century of work done by and for women — what the 20th century will show — no one can foresee — but that it will be vastly more and better — we cannot fail to believe — But you & I have done the best we knew — and so must rest content — leaving all to younger hands.

Your sincere friend and coworker

Susan B. Anthony
