Over 200 participants, dressed in suffragist style and carrying signs and banners, marched in Terre Haute, August 27, 2012, in a Women's Day Equality March organized by The League of Women Voters of Vigo County and a community steering committee.
The event, co-sponsored by local businesses, celebrated the ninety-second anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and included inspirational remarks and speeches, presentation of yellow roses to women who have voted consistently for many years, voter registration and a collection of donated items for a local charity.
