THE SUFFRAGE WAGON CAFE FEATURES A LINK TO ELIZABETH JOHNSON SINGING “THE MARCH OF THE WOMEN”

“The March of the Women” performed by Elizabeth Johnson for Suffrage Wagon Cafe is a classic work from the first wave of the women’s rights movement in the US.

“The March of the Women” was the anthem of the English women’s suffrage movement. It was composed by Ethel Smyth in 1910. The song is still widely performed today. The women’s march is the soundtrack for a special message from Dr. Helen Pankhurst to American women voters. Dr. Pankhurst is a contemporary women’s rights activist in the UK. She is the granddaughter of suffragette Sylvia Pankhurst and the great granddaughter of Emmeline Pankhurst.
