The first in her village to vote

In this country, Susan B. Anthony was arrested in 1872 for trying to vote.

Many decades later, in November of this year, Fouzia Talib, 29, was the first and only woman in her farming village in Pakistan to vote since her country was created in 1947.

“My brothers and sisters are receiving calls from members of our own family, saying that I have done a very bad thing and that I have humiliated them,” Talib said in a November 21, 2015, National Public Radio story.

“It was necessary because it is a woman’s right to vote.”
