Suffragettes from the National Women's Party protest at the Republican National Convention, 1920. The sign reads, "We protest against the continued disenfranhisement of women, for which the Republican Party is now responsible. The Republican Party defeated ratification in Delaware. The Republican Party is blocking ratification in Vermont. The Republican Party is blocking ratification in Connecticut. When will the Republican Party stop blocking suffrage?"
