Women of Protest: Photographs from the Records of the National Woman's Party

This new addition to Library of Congress' American Memory makes 448 images culled from approximately 2,650 photographs in the Records of the National Woman's Party, and held by the Manuscript Division at Library of Congress, available online. The National Woman's Party was the militant wing of the suffrage movement, whose members engaged in public protests, such as picketing, pageants, parades, hunger strikes, and demonstrations, often resulting in arrests and imprisonment, all to bring publicity to the cause of women's right to vote. Pictures reflecting this broad range of tactics, dating from 1875 to 1938 (the majority from 1913 and 1922) are showcased at the website. The gallery entitled Suffrage Prisoners presents portraits of roughly 60 National Woman's Party activists who were jailed for their role in suffrage protests.
