Author Rebecca Roberts told the story of women suffragists, led by Alice Paul, who marched from Capitol Hill to the White House in 1913. The parade, which took place the day before Woodrow Wilson’s inauguration and attracted huge crowds, caused an uproar along Pennsylvania Avenue. Many marchers were harassed and injured. While the march earned the suffragists national attention, it took them seven more years to earn the right to vote with passage of the 19th amendment in 1920. The Daughters of the American Revolution Museum hosted this event. close
