Suffrage Parade in Washington, D.C., March 3rd, 1913: Cartoons Magazine Centennial 1913

On March 3rd, 1913 — the day prior to Woodrow Wilson’s Inauguration Parade — the National American Woman Suffrage Association staged their own parade along the next day’s route in support of Women’s Suffrage. During the parade, some women were attacked by male onlookers, while the police present did nothing or joined in.

Above & below, from the March 1913 issue of Cartoons Magazine, are a pair of cartoons which had originally been published prior to the parade, satirizing what its cartoonists anticipate the parade might involve. Attitudes such as Fontaine Fox‘s above, playfully suggesting ways to harass the paraders, might conceivably have had a role in encouraging the later actual harassment that did occur.

Click on the above & below pictures, to view the cartoons in detail, and better read the words within them.

Beneath, two pages of cartoons about the Parade from the April 1913 issue — all of them drawn by men. The cartoonists are: Clifford K. Berryman, Robert Satterfield, James H. Donahey, John Scott Clubb, Walker O’Loughlin, Ralph Everett Wilder, and Guy Spencer.
