Penn[sylvania] on the picket line

Title

Penn[sylvania] on the picket line

Subject

Suffragists stand outside the White House calling for President Wilson to endorse the Suffragist movement.

Description

Fourteen Suffragists stand on the picket line outside the Wilson White House. The sign reads, "Mr. President How Long Must Women Wait For Liberty." Wilson would lead the United States to war by calling it a democratic crusade. American women used this message to batter the president by pointing to his support for democracy abroad and its suppression at home. In this way the NWP sought to force Wilson into supporting the suffragette movement.
