Title

Shoulder to Shoulder [The March of the Women]

Description

Music and lyrics taken from "The March of Women" composed by Ethel Smyth in 1910, to words by Cicely Hamilton. This copy was posted on the bulletin board of Muriel Smith's ERA office in Virginia. 

 "The March of the Women" became the official anthem of the Women's Social and Political Union (WSPU) in the United Kingdom and, more widely, the anthem of the women's suffrage movement. 

A version of this anthem performed by the Rainbow Chorus (UK) in 2009 may be heard on YouTube.
