Justice Bell was a highly revered symbol of women’s suffrage in America during the late 1910s. It’s also a replication of the infamous Liberty Bell. In 1915, Justice Bell traveled over 5,000-miles on a tour throughout the United States, to raise awareness about the women’s right to vote. The bell sat on the bed of a truck with the tongue, or clapper chained to the side of it. The silencing of the clapper was a symbolic representation of the suppression of women’s voices. Today, this iconic bell permanently resides in the Washington Memorial Chapel.
