Alice Paul


Repeatedly arrested, Alice Paul was jailed, roughly mistreated, finally brutally force-fed . Why? Because of her unwavering, fearless activism in the fierce fight for women’s vote in the United States, a right that was finally won in 1920 with the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.  Today–January 11th in 1885, Alice Paul was born in Paulsdale, New Jersey.  Happy Birthday Alice Paul! “To me,” she said in a 1972 interview, “there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality.”
