Meet the Rabble-Rousing Suffragettes of 1913 (20 Photos)

From the early 1900s until the ratification of the 19th amendment in 1920, an initially small (and then much larger) group of women began to lobby "For the vote".  This set off what was called the Suffrage Movement, its members being known as Suffragettes.  Many of us were first exposed to this concept in the film Mary Poppins, if you'll remember the mother was an active (and very well dressed) Suffragette.  

The following photos give you a close-up look at some of the specific people who shaped the movement from 1908-1920, ending with a triumphant day on November 1920 when women voted for the first time...
