The 19th century women’s suffrage movement in the U.S. resulted in voting rights for women in all but 9 states but the movement has stalled and a constitutional amendment is needed for women in all states to have the right to vote. When incoming President Woodrow Wilson declares himself against a national amendment for women’s voting rights. Alice Paul and Maud Malone organize a march in Washington to take place the day before Wilson’s inauguration. Themes of resistance, misogyny, and racism echo our contemporary women’s march 100 years later.
