The first big public march

Title

The first big public march

Description

“The Woman Suffrage procession moved down Fifth Avenue yesterday to the meeting of protest in Union Square, well guarded by the mounted police.

New York Times, May 22, 1910

The protest was against the action, or lack of it, taken by the legislators at Albany in regard to the Woman Suffrage bill which they cannot be persuaded to vote out of committee...

There were 10,000 persons in Union Square who listened to the speeches the women made.

It was the biggest suffrage demonstration ever held in the US.

The women taking part in the demonstration went in procession, some in automobiles and others on foot. Many of them had never taken part in anything of the kind before, and were resolute, but a good deal scared.”
