On the eve of Woodrow Wilson’s 1913 inauguration, Alice Paul organized over 8,000 women in a march down Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House. Troops were called to help the suffragists get to their destination but it was 7 more years before women voted for the first time in the 1920 presidential election. The fight took 72 years, spanning two centuries, 18 presidencies, and three wars. Go Alice!
