Women in HerStory- Alice Paul

Alice Paul

January 11, 1885 – July 9, 1977

Alice Paul was the architect of some of the most outstanding political achievements on behalf of women in the 20th century. Born on January 11, 1885 to Quaker parents in Mt. Laurel, New Jersey, Alice Paul dedicated her life to the single cause of securing equal rights for all women.

Few individuals have had as much impact on American history as has Alice Paul. Her life symbolizes the long struggle for justice in the United States and around the world. Her vision was the ordinary notion that women and men should be equal partners in society.

  1. I had never heard of her until I saw the movie Iron Jaws. She was an amazing woman, who sacrificed so much for all of us.
