Welcome to a screening and panel discussion of PBS American Experience: The Vote.
On Monday, March 3, 1913, clad in a white cape astride a white horse, lawyer Inez Milholland led the great woman suffrage parade down Pennsylvania Avenue in the nation's capital. Behind her stretched a long line with nine bands, four mounted brigades, three heralds, about twenty-four floats, and more than 5,000 marchers.
On August 26, a day we observe Women’s Equality Day in our nation, we invite you to watch a segment from the documentary, The Vote, which brings this parade alive to us today. You’ll learn why this event was a turning point and helped move women closer to winning the vote. The viewing will be followed by a panel discussion.
