Edith Mayo, assistant curator in the Division of Political History at the National Museum of History and Technology, now known as the National Museum of American History, holds a banner from the 1913 Woman Suffrage Procession brought by the National Woman's Party. The march was held to commemorate the life and work of Alice Paul, who successfully campaigned for women's suffrage in 1917-1918 and played a major role in the adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment (19th Amendment or Amendment XIX) to the United States Constitution which prohibits the states and the federal government from denying the right to vote to citizens of the United States on the basis of sex.
