One Response to = Rights!

  1. Shaoze Liu says:

    A: This video talks about Alice Paul was born on January 11, 1885, in Moorestown, New Jersey, Paul provided just such leadership for the woman suffrage (the right to vote) movement.

    B: Alice Paul joined the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) after she got a PH.D in social work from the University of Pennsylvania. Her first job was to put on a parade in Washington D.C, to draw attention to their cause. Over the next seven years, Paul and others relentlessly pursued legislation that would add a woman’s right to vote to the Constitution. Paul left NAWSA and formed a political party, the National Woman’s Party, that campaigned and demonstrated. Party members picketed the White House and ended up behind bars, where they continued their protest with a hunger strike, until officials force-fed them. In 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment, allowing women the right to vote, was finally added to the Constitution. Before her death in 1977, Alice Paul helped orchestrate enormous changes in the rights and status of American women, exemplifying a strong and determined leader.
