More from the site:
90 years ago a small group of women organized a parade that would help change the U.S. Constitution and win political power for half of the American population. On March 3, 1913, a band of suffragists in Washington D.C. staged such a remarkable demonstration for women’s rights that it has long been acknowledged as one of the high points in the 72-year drive for Votes for Women in the U.S.
Another place to visit with great info and links, is the Feminist Majority website

The charismatic Alice Paul was 28 years old and her colleague, the brilliant and courageous Lucy Burns, was 33.
