The right to vote for women did not come easily. It took several generations of dedicated activism to win the right to vote for women. In this photograph, women are marching in Washington, DC, the day before the presidential inauguration, to raise the issue of equal suffrage for women. The parade involved five to eight thousand suffrage marchers and an estimated half million marchers -- and distracted from the arrival in Washington of the newly elected president, Woodrow Wilson.
