In this clip, we will travel to 1913, as provocative suffrage leader Alice Paul organizes a massive suffrage parade on Pennsylvania Avenue. Suffragists from around the country, including Ida B. Wells, travel to Washington D.C. as word of the event spreads in the press. But unexpected internal and external challenges threaten the success of the parade. In the wake of the parade, Alice Paul and Lucy Burns set their sights on President Woodrow Wilson. Disagreement within the National Suffrage organization grows over Paul’s antagonistic tactics. The movement’s efforts reach a climax in 1915 with referendum votes in New York, Massachusetts, and other major eastern states. This looks like the suffrage movement’s best chance for a breakthrough.
