Mrs. O.H.P. Belmont

  • [Honoring 'a hundred gallant women' who had been imprisoned for their suffragist activities:] The suffrage pickets stood at the White House gates for ten months and dramatized the women's agitation for political liberty. Self-respecting and patriotic American women will no longer tolerate a government which denies women the right to govern themselves. A flame of rebellion is abroad among women, and the stupidity and brutality of the government in this revolt have only served to increase its heat.
