Pennsylvania Avenue, in front of the White HouseIn commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the Woman Suffrage Parade, join national park rangers and park volunteers from Turning Point Suffragist Memorial as they reenact another facet of the woman’s suffrage campaign–the 1917 silent sentinel demonstrations outside the White House. Hear of the women’s courage and determination as they withstood unruly mobs and police brutality. Witness history and participate in democracy as the suffragists have their voices heard by silently demanding the right to vote.
Park rangers and volunteers dressed as silent sentinels will be on Pennsylvania Avenue in front of the White House from 10am to 2pm on March 2, 2013, to answer questions, engage passersby, and “demonstrate” for woman suffrage. At 11am and again at 1pm, rangers and volunteers will conduct a formal talk about the historic protests that led to the passage of the 19th Amendment.
