On this day: the Women’s Journal Cover

The edition of the Women’s Journal from the 8th of March, 1913 reports on the suffragette march in Washington D.C. five days earlier.

Even though it was one of the most influential of marches of its kind, more than two-hundred people had to be treated in hospital after being attacked by mostly male crowds who were against giving women the vote.
