Happy Birthday Alice Paul!

Deeds not Words: VOTE!

Alice Paul (January 11, 1885 – July 9, 1977) was an American suffragist, feminist, and women's rights activist, and one of the main leaders and strategists of the campaign for the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution (August 26, 1920), which prohibits sex discrimination in the right to vote.

After 1920, Paul spent a half century as leader of the National Woman's Party, which fought for the Equal Rights Amendment, to secure constitutional equality for women.

This year, Americans will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the passage Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  You will be learning much more about Alice Paul and women who fought for the right to vote in the upcoming year.
