Suffrage Centennial Celebration - "The First Picket In Front of The White House"
One hundred years later this key moment in women's history will be celebrated with a weekend full of great exhibits, lively and informative panels and discussions, special programs, events and entertainment.  Expect the unexpected in Washington, DC March 1-3, 2013 as you visit the city's most iconic institutions, historic sites and the many leading organizations that have come together to provide a lively weekend full of exceptional experiences.

Come and join the Parade! Honor the Suffragist who won the vote for you and me by participating in the commemorative Suffrage Centennial March down Pennsylvania Avenue on Sunday, March 3 led by Delta Sigma Theta.  Many women's organizations were invited to participate - check the website of your favorite group or you are welcome to march with the National Women's History Museum. The parade begins with a rally on the west lawn of the US Capitol at 9:00 a.m. If you plan to join NWHM, please register at or visit for details.

Here's a small sampling of dozens of additional special events and attractions planned for the weekend: 
  • Winning the right to vote took millions of women, and many enlightened men 72 years over 3 generations.  Don't miss seeing the result of all their efforts, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution at the National Archives. It won't be shown again until 2020.  
  • Learn about strategies used by the Suffragist in a lively panel discussion "Three Generations Fighting for the Vote" or focus on "Modern Day Activism and the Role of Social Media" both presented on Saturday.
  • Bring your family and enjoy a special program for families and youth at the Smithsonian's Museum of American History.  While there, view an exhibit about the suffrage movement from 1913-1920.
  • Suffragists will once again picket the White House this time with a National Park Ranger explaining the importance of their non-violent civil disobedience, techniques later used by Gandhi and Martin Luther King.    
  • Visit the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum, the historic headquarters of the National Woman's Party that led the final push for the constitutional amendment, for a rare glimpse at suffrage artifacts.
  • See striking exhibits; take part in panel discussions, special programs, and many other interesting events that are planned.  
Celebrate this historic anniversary event; honor the women who paved the way to freedom and equal rights for all of us!  Bring your daughters, sisters and friends... invite your spouse, sons and clients...
