Large parades in support of women's suffrage were held in both New York City and Washington, D.C. Alice Paul organized a parade down Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington in 1913. Held the day before Woodrow Wilson's inauguration, the parade degenerated into a riot when thousands of male spectators tried to block its passage. Troops were called in to restore order and hundreds of people were hospitalized. This parade in New York City was also large, with 30,000 women marching, but it was peaceful.
