Title

Policewoman arrests Florence Youmans of Minnesota and Annie Arniel (center) of Delaware for refusing to give up their banners.

Subject

Arrests were made frequently and were used as a way to get the NWP picketers off the White house property.

Description

In this image we see three women in the foreground. Two are NWP picketers and the third is a police woman who is in the process of arresting the picketers. It has been estimated that close to 300 NWP members were arrested and near 100 picketers were imprisoned for varying lengths of stay. The woman in the background is holding aloft a banner showing the colors of the NWP white, gold and purple. White for the purity of their intentions, gold for the justice of their cause and purple for the spirit in which they pursued it.
