October 23rd 1915: Suffrage parade
On this day in 1915, over 25,000 women marched on Fifth Avenue in New York City. They were advocating female suffrage and women’s rights in America. The campaign for female suffrage culminated in the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution in 1920 which ensured the right to vote shall not be denied on account of sex. Notable figures in the female suffrage movement in America include Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton.
