Women mounted on horses and horse-drawn wagons (as seen on the front cover of this March 1913 issue of the Woman’s Journal) suggests that the drama was very much a part of the impact of the demonstrations. It was a rare sight for women to be out of the home and in public in such large numbers, and the crowds turning out to witness the parades often exceeded the women themselves. At a time when the vote for women is taken for granted, the impact of these times has faded almost to the point of invisibility. It’s a reminder, however, of the effectiveness of determination in getting things done.
