Woman Suffrage Parade in Washington, D.C.

Women on horseback ride down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., at the start of the national suffrage parade on March 3, 1913. The U.S. Capitol is visible in the background. This event took place on the eve of the first-term inauguration of President Woodrow Wilson. At that time Wilson did not endorse the national movement for woman suffrage.
