In 1912, Harriot Stanton Blatch (right) organized a parade for the New York state campaign that drew 20,000 marchers. The daughter of trailblazing suffragist Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Blatch embraced women’s rights. At Vassar College—a school that barred suffrage activity—she took her work to a nearby cemetery and organized “graveyard rallies.” She then spent 20 years in England, actively advocating for suffrage and labor. Back in America, she recruited working-class women to the suffrage cause, and organized parades like the one pictured here in New York City.
