Official program cover - Woman suffrage procession, Washington, D.C. March 3, 1913.
The woman suffrage parade of 1913, officially the "Woman Suffrage Procession", was the first suffragist parade in Washington, D.C. Organized by the suffragist Alice Paul for the National American Woman Suffrage Association, thousands of suffragists marched down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., on March 3, 1913. The event was scheduled on the day before President Woodrow Wilson's inauguration to "march in a spirit of protest against the present political organization of society, from which women are excluded," as the official program stated.
The march and the attention that it attracted were monumental in advancing women's suffrage in the United States. The parade is scheduled to be depicted and honored on the redesign of the United States ten-dollar bill in 2020. Long overdue. (Wikipedia).
