Political cartoon of 3 women marching through snow, playing drums & a flute, holding a banner and wearing hats that say, Votes for Women. They pass a sign: To Washington 200 miles.

In 1913, suffragists walked from New York City to Washington, DC to join the Woman Suffrage Procession. Cartoonists compared the suffragists with Revolutionary War heroes. Suffragists too adopted arguments for liberty that the Founding Fathers had advanced. “Taxation without representation,” the Declaration of Independence, and more were used to focus attention on the injustices women suffered.
