Library of Congress, American Memory

Era: Post-Suffrage Era | Media: Commentary

This essay from the Library of Congress explores how the National Woman’s Party, or NWP, used various techniques to raise public awareness of the woman’s suffrage campaign. Traditional lobbying and petitioning were mainstays of NWP members, but these activities were supplemented by other more public actions—including parades, pageants, street speaking, and demonstrations.

You can also access an archive of NWP suffrage resources here.
