At about the same time as Woodrow Wilson's inaugural parade, in 1913, suffragists held their own parade.  They referred to it as a freedom march.

This image depicts a scene from that March 3, 1913 suffrage event.

The Library of Congress, which maintains this photograph, provides a description for it:

Head of suffrage parade, Washington, D.C.

Women suffragists marching on Pennsylvania Avenue led by Mrs. Richard Coke Burleson (center on horseback); U.S. Capitol in background.
