Memorial to Congress from
The American Woman Suffrage Association
Association of Army Nurses of the Civil War Letterto U.S. House Judiciary Committee
During World War I, militant suffragists, demanding that President Wilson reverse his opposition to a federal amendment, stood vigil at the White House and carried banners such as this one comparing the President to Kaiser Wilhelm II of Germany. In the heated patriotic climate of wartime, such tactics met with hostility and sometimes violence and arrest.
