D.C.'s Centennial Suffrage Celebration

Happy Women's History Month, readers! We're off to a great start.


Last weekend, D.C. held its Suffrage Centennial Celebration. It had been 100 years since women marched for the right to vote in the nation's capital.


With suffragette artifacts featured at the National American History Museum, the 19th Amendment on display at the National Archives, and a Delta Sigma Theta recreation of Alice Paul's Pennsylvania Avenue parade, it was all the real life Iron Jawed Angels a feminist could ever want.


Not only did I get to be there, but I got to write about it.


Twice.


The month is far from over. There's more women's history fun to be had. If you have an event you'd like to promote, tweet me at @KateThink or leave the details in the comments below. And, as always, thanks for helping celebrate our herstory!
