Local sorority chapter reenacts century-old Women’s March

I-270

Dozens could be heard throughout downtown Frederick, Maryland on Saturday morning, reenacting a historic march that took place more than a century ago.

Members of the Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc. along with county government officials, including County Executive Jan Gardner, embarked on a mile-long procession in spirit of the 1913 Women’s Suffrage March in Washington, D.C.

Just like women in the early 1900s, marchers today are focused on voting.

“It’s important to be educated, [and] it’s important to be informed. Know what the issues are, whatever they are for you, and then use your vote to make that change,” said President of the Frederick County Alumnae Chapter for Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Janette Goodman.

The march was followed by a keynote speaker at the Weinberg Center, focused on community action.
