Alice Paul – Women’s right to vote

Women’s history has been basically excluded from the classroom text books in public schools. This is why I chose to speak about this woman who influences the course of history.

human-rights-1898841_1280Alice Paul was a rights activist and a suffragist who fought for women’s right to vote. Every time you go to the voting booth to choose your candidate, you are doing so because she fought for your right to do so.

She was arrested and imprisoned numerous times due to her beliefs and values. She also participated in hunger strikes.

She also became the leader of the National Women’s Party which fought for equal rights.

She inspired and continues to inspire with her legacy many women to vote, fight for equal rights and have their voices heard.
