The cover of the official program for the woman suffrage procession held in Washington, D.C., in 1913. The illustration employs romantic and heroic imagery to enhance support for the movement. An estimated 5,000 to 8,000 suffragists marched from the U.S. Capitol past the White House. The event drew hundreds of thousands of watchers along Pennsylvania Avenue. Some suffrage opponents in the crowd hurled insults while others resorted to violence. Two hundred marchers were injured. (Library of Congress)
