The second inauguration of Woodrow Wilson as President of the United States was held privately on Sunday, March 4, 1917, and publicly on Monday, March 5, 1917, at the east portico of the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C.. The inauguration marked the commencement of the second four-year term of Woodrow Wilson as President and of Thomas R. Marshall as Vice President. Chief Justice Edward D. White administered the presidential oath of office to Wilson.[1]

Crows of men in Washington for the inauguration assaulted women picketing the White House and demanding women get the right to vote. Press coverage of the violence and the women's suffrage movement overshadowed that of the inauguration itself.[2]
