March 3rd 1913 The Woman Suffrage Procession (1913) was the first suffragist parade in Washington, D.C. It was also the first large, organized march on Washington for political purposes. The procession was organized by the suffragists Alice Paul and Lucy Burns for the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA). They had met in Britain where they took part in activities of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU), and later reunited in the United States. Planning for the event began in Washington in December 1912. The parade's purpose, stated in its official program, was to "march in a spirit of protest against the present political organization of society, from which women are excluded".
