Photo Details

Abby Scott Baker in 1917.

Abby Scott Baker was involved in planning one of the first suffrage events in Washington DC on March 3, 1913 - the night before Woodrow Wilson's inauguration. She continued to be very active in the suffragist movement and served 60 days in the Occoquan Workhouse after being arrested for one demonstration.

It is due to women like Abby Scott Baker that we (women) have the right to vote.
