The continuing education of a young feminist.
On January 13th, 1913, 22 women at Howard University founded the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority. Less than two months after the sorority’s founding, the Founders of Delta Sigma Theta began their political activism by participating in the historic 1913 Women’s Suffrage March on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, D.C. on March 3, 1913. The twenty-two Founders of Delta Sigma Theta marched with honorary member Mary Church Terrell under the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority banner on the day prior to Woodrow Wilson’s inauguration; they were the only Black women’s organization to walk in the march. They were subjected to racism, not only from the spectators, but from white women organizers who forced them to walk in a “Black Only” section at the end of the parade.
