Imagine having the audacity to believe that women and men should be equal partners in society. Alice Paul did. During a period in American history when women were denied a voice, Alice raised hers and changed the course of a nation set in its ways.
Beaten, jailed, and assailed as a pariah for her beliefs, she never quit. The result of her fierce dedication
to women’s rights was one of the most outstanding political achievements on behalf of women in the 20th
century - the successful passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920, which
ensures a woman’s right to vote.
For the rest of her life, Alice fought for securing equal rights for all women. Her life symbolizes the long
struggle for justice in the United States and around the world.
