Alice Paul: the most overlooked civil rights leader of the 20th century!

Alice Paul is finally getting the recognition she deserves. Yet, during her lifetime she wasn’t interested in glory. She kept her eye on the prize: women’s rights and the vote. This video fills in a great deal. And keep in mind that author Mary Walton never heard of Alice Paul before a newspaper editor brought Paul to her attention. Meanwhile, this interview highlights where Walton calls Paul “the most overlooked civil rights leader of the 20th century.”

  1. Thanks for this. Alice Paul is fascinating.

  2. Great reminder of the great contributions made by our foremothers.

  3. Nice job in getting out the word.

  4. Even if there’s a HBO film about Alice Paul, that doesn’t mean millions of people have seen it. WE need more.

  5. I believe the entire suffrage movement is overlooked. I wouldn’t quite say that Alice Paul is the most overlooked element of it, given that a TV movie was made about her. Incidentally, I can strongly recommend Mary Walton’s book. It doesn’t tell the whole story, but it is still very worthwhile.
