Women used many different methods to earn the right to vote in the Women’s Suffrage Movement. One of these methods was parading. Women formed a huge parade to try to gain rights. Instead, they got papers and bottles thrown at them. They were verbally harassed by men on the side. The men eventually broke through the barriers and started to attack the women. There, many women were injured. Instead of helping, the police just walked away. Another method the women used was picket lines. The women went to the White House with picket signs. They stayed from dusk to dawn. The women managed to get Woodrow Wilson’s speeches, and burned them. Because of this, the women were arrested for obstructing traffic. The women had a choice; $10 or 60 days in prison.
