Alice Paul and the American Suffrage Campaign

This book is about Alice Paul
In "Alice Paul and the American Suffrage Campaign," Katherine H. Adams and Michael L. Keene meticulously retrace the overlooked trajectory of Alice Paul, a pivotal figure in the women's suffrage movement. Published on December 11, 2007, this compelling study uncovers the innovative, nonviolent tactics Paul employed, including the historic firsts of picketing the White House and burning the president in effigy. The authors delve deep into Paul’s audacious strategies, such as national political boycotts and public hunger strikes, that were instrumental in shifting American perspectives towards women's voting rights. This narrative not only revisits the physical perils these suffragettes faced but also highlights the transformative power of visual and nonviolent protest in the quest for gender equality. Engaging and insightful, this book is a prime resource for adult education settings, enriching understandings of gender equality and voting rights through the lens of a formidable leader.
