Rebecca Boggs Roberts - 'Suffragists in Washington, D.C.'

​The 1913 Great Suffrage Parade was the first civil rights march to use the nation’s capitol as a backdrop. The actions of Alice Paul and the National Woman’s Party in forming the parade began the era of protests, picketing, and campaigning for the women’s right to vote, ​leading directly to the passage of the 19th Amendment​ in 1920. Author Rebecca Boggs Roberts narrates the heroic struggle of these brave women as they worked to earn the vote in Suffragists in Washington, D.C.: The 1913 Parade and the Fight for the Vote. Join us to learn more about the ladies that paved the way for gender equality.
