Remember to Vote

Women activists worked tirelessly to secure equal rights.

Famous suffragist Elisabeth Freeman wanted to attract attention on a trip from Manhattan to Washington, D.C., so she dressed like a gypsy. Freeman was on her way to the Woman Suffrage Procession, held March 3, 1913 in D.C. About 8,000 marched, 100 of which were assaulted by onlooker-men. This was only one of many steps needed; it wasn’t until 1920 that women secured the right to vote.

It’s worth remembering during Women’s History Month.
