The Sioux City Public Museum is one of the first places in Iowa to display a replica Suffrage Wagon that was used in parades from 1913-1920.

Museum Education Curator Theresa Weaver-Bayse says the wagons were used in parades in an attempt to convince male lawmakers to pass the 19th Amendment, that would give women the right to vote.
