This is going to be Women's Suffrage week here at Old Picture of the Day. We kick the week off with this picture of Inez Milholland Boissevain mounted on horseback in a Suffrage Parade in 1913. Ms. Boissevain was a lawyer, and was an ardent supporter of not only the Suffrage Movement, but African American rights, and the rights of workers in sweat shop. She died unexpectedly at the early age of about 30.
