Lucy Joselyn Cutler Daniels, known by her initials L.J.C. Daniels, was a political activist and suffragist from Grafton, Vermont. In 1896, she graduated from NYU with a law degree. She participated in protests and demonstrations in front of the White House and the Capitol building. Her protests against President Woodrow Wilson resulted in her being jailed on several occasions. L.J.C. Daniels refused to pay her property taxes resulting in the town officials of Grafton auctioning off bank stock she inherited from her father. After this, she wrote on the front of a building she owned “A-SQUARE-DEAL: Votes for Vermont Women. In 1911, a tax collector auctioned off her remaining assets.
Civil Rights & Women’s Suffrage
In the United States, women did not have the right to vote until the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920. It states The right of citizens of the U.S. to vote shall not be denied or abridged by the U.S. or by any State on account of sex. Women’s suffrage emerged from the broader women’s rights movement of the 1840s, and two competing organizations, one led by Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and another led by Lucy Stone. In 1890, they merged becoming the National American Woman Suffrage Association led by Susan B. Anthony.
