Suffrage March

On March 3rd, 1913, thousands of women marched down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C., to demand voting rights. But as visible in this photograph, a much larger and hostile crowd surrounded them, cutting off the parade route and threatening the women with violence. It would be seven more years until the 19th Amendment was passed.
