Women’s Suffrage Centennial Celebration in Washington DC this weekend

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.
