Women's Suffrage

The Women's Suffrage Parade of 1913 occurred a day before the election of Woodrow Wilson, when 5,000 women marched on Pennsylvania Avenue demanding the right to vote. The parade was watched by a crown of men who jostled and ridiculed the women, and the men were ignored and some sources even say supported by the police. This march put the Women's Rights movement in the news, setting the stage for women's suffrage laws to come in the future.

19th Amendment

After decades of strife, the amendment for Women's Suffrage was finally passed by Congress on June 4, 1919. Tennessee became the 36th state to ratify the amendment on August 18, 1920, giving it the necessary 3/4 vote for it to be ratified nationally. The amendment was officially signed into action on August 26, 1920.

Alice Paul

Alice Paul was one of the leaders of the suffrage movement, helping to organize the Women's Suffrage Parade in 1913. She eventually spent years in prison after protesting Woodrow Wilson's presidency. After the passage of the 19th amendment, Paul fought vigorously for the Equal Rights Amendment which guaranteed equal rights for men and women. It was passed in 1972.
