西元19171月间,妇女开始在白宫面前游行,以争取妇女投票权。同年828日,有10名抗议人士遭到逮捕。这些妇女希望伍德罗.威尔逊 (Woodrow Wilson) 总统能够支持安东尼宪法修正案 (Anthony Amendment to the Constitution) ,赋予妇女投票的权利。这些妇女一开始是安静的站立在白宫外,并且拿着写着「总统先生,你为妇女投票权做了什么?」的海报。当威尔逊总统与她的夫人一同搭车进入白宫时,威尔逊总统通常都会脱帽向这些抗议者致意。

Women started parading in front of the White House for "woman suffrage," women's right to vote, during January 1917. On August 28 of that year, 10 suffragists were arrested. The women wanted President Woodrow Wilson to support the proposed Anthony amendment to the Constitution, which would guarantee women the right to vote. They started off standing silently, holding picket signs reading, "Mr. President, what will you do for Woman Suffrage?" and "How Long Must Women Wait for Liberty?" Riding through the White House gates, his wife by his side, President Wilson customarily tipped his hat to the protestors.
