Transcript prison and hang women while they deny them the right of representation in the Government; and I shall work on with might and main to pay every dollar of that honest debt, but not a penny will go to this unjust claim." The judge refused to jail her for non-payment and therefore Susan lost any chance for appeal to the Supreme Court, an appeal that might have changed the course of women's suffrage. The battle lost, Susan continued to fight the war, working for an amendment to the Constitution guaranteeing women the right to vote. She continued to circulate petitions, go on lecture tours, and lobby in Washington for this "Sixteenth Amendment." It was not until 1890 that the first major success was won. In that year Wyoming became the first state to give women the vote. That year women's suffrage supporters were united into one organization. Much to Susan's joy, the American Woman Suffrage Association (led by Lucy Stone) joined the National Woman Suffrage Association. In 1892 Susan became the president of the new organization. At the age of 80, after serving eight years, she resigned, although she continued to work for women's suffrage almost as busily as before. Gradually, however, Susan began to succumb to age. She contracted pneumonia and died on March 13, 1906. One of the few complaints she ever uttered was that she must die before women could vote. On her deathbed she said, "Just think of it. I have been striving for over sixty years for a little bit of justice no bigger than that, and yet I must die without obtaining it. Oh, it seems so cruel!" At the memorial service, Carrie Chapman Catt expressed the feelings of women all over the nation when she said, "We have not lost a leader alone, but a dear, dear friend whose place can never be filled. We shall never see her like again." Betty Barnes "Cautious, careful people always casting about to preserve their reputation or social standards never can bring about a reform. Those who are really in earnest must be willing to be anything or nothing in the world's estimation and publicly and privately, in season and out, avow their sympathies with despised ideas and their advocates, and bear the consequences." Susan B. Anthony
