Action, Now! #10

Original Caption:

Washington -- Alice Paul makes a toast to Tennessee's ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, giving women the right to vote. The banner beside her was displayed outside the National Women's Suffrage Party's Washington, DC, headquarters showing the stars of the states which had ratified the amendment. Since the 18th amendment, Prohibition, had previously been passed, the toast was with grape juice (1920)
