The fight to win the vote was not an easy feat for women. For over 70 years, suffragists used different strategies to promote suffrage. Their strategies included marches, writing petitions and articles, speeches, and holding conventions.

One of the most famous suffrage parades took place the day before Woodrow Wilson’s inauguration, March 3, 1913, on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington D.C. More than 5,000 women and men marched in protest for the exclusion of women in the political sphere. The march included enfranchised women, the suffrage pioneers, working women, state delegations, and male supporters. African American suffragists did march, however, they marched at the back of the parade to avoid upsetting the Southern suffragists.

The suffragists were not met with a warm welcome. Men refused to clear the street for the parade. Onlookers spit, slapped, tripped, and insulted the women as they passed by them. Despite the hostility, the women soldiered on. The parade was a significant turning point for the women’s movement. The next 6 years, women would continue to fight and show they would not be ignored.

Did you know that women were excluded from political and public life before the passage of the 19th amendment? White women were lawfully bound to their husbands or fathers. They were not allowed to vote, own property, or control their finances. Instead, they were expected to focus on housework and raising children, not participating in suffrage marches and conventions. With their step into the political life, women began to redefine what it meant to be a woman.
If you would like to know more, stop by the library to check out more information about the efforts of these women!

The Library is pleased to host the popup exhibition, Rightfully Hers, from the National Archives to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Rightfully Hers contains simple messages exploring the history of the ratification of the 19th amendment, women's voting rights before and after the 19th, and its impact today. Take a walk around the popup to learn more about the history of women's voting rights!
Thank you to Michelle Riggs, University Archivist, for obtaining this for our students to enjoy and Martha Dauzat, Circulation Manager, for setting it up.
