In Susan B. Anthony's “speech after being convicted of voting” Anthony's main point was tobring attention to how unfair it is that women aren't being treated as citizens, by not being ableto vote. Another reason that she wrote this speech was to prove that she didn't commit a crime,but was instead exercising one of her rights as a citizen. The point of view anthony's uses in herspeech is second person point of view.The reason that Anthony gives as to why she's innocent is that she has the right as a citizen tovote. The evidence that Anthony gives to support her points are the constitution and thefourteenth amendment. When she cited the constitution, she said that it made all people equal.She said that if they said man and men and only ment men, then women also shouldn't have topay taxes, since the tax laws dont say men and women. Anthony uses the fourteenthamendment as a basis for argument.
