The Suffrage Centennial Celebration, honoring the 100 year anniversary of the Women’s Suffrage March in Washington DC, will be held in the nation’s capitol this weekend from March 1-3, 2013. The celebration commemorates the centennial of the date Inez Milholland and other women’s suffragists led a crowd of thousands through the street of Washington, to fight for women’s right to vote. A re-enactment of the March will take place along the original parade route– along Pennsylvania Avenue– on Sunday March 3, beginning with a rally at 9 a.m. on the West Lawn of the U.S. Capitol. Some streets in Washington will be closed or delayed for the procession.
