Create a Suffrage Banner

Alice Paul and the "Silent Sentinels"

were the first in history

to picket outside the White House. 

The women would gather daily- rain or shine- to stand in silence,

holding their banners in support of women's voting rights. 

Make a sign and declare your support for women's rights!
