Equal Suffrage League of Virginia Rally

A rally sponsored by the Richmond chapter of the Equal Suffrage League of Virginia—an organization dedicated to securing for women the right to vote—takes place on the steps of the Capitol on May 1, 1916. The speaker, standing at center, is Rabbi Edward Calisch of the Congregation Beth Ahabah, in Richmond. In his speech, he proclaimed that woman suffrage was "a matter of simple justice."
