Pennsylvania College for Women suffragette float, Pittsburgh, 1914 [University of Pittsburgh Digital Archives] 

On May 2, 1914, courageous women and men paraded through downtown Pittsburgh in support of the controversial topic of women’s right to vote. The PCW float attests to women’s fine qualities. The side panels read: HARMONY, LOVE, {probably} FAITH, SERVICE, and DEMOCRACY. The College Seal is affixed to the horse’s blanket. Mrs. Julian Kennedy, wife of the noted Pittsburgh engineer, led the procession. In addition to local suffragists, the parade consisted of councilmen, girls in white to represent suffrage states, professional women, Boy Scouts, a motorcade, and contingents from various regional and national associations.
