Explore the remarkable journey of Alice Paul in "Alice Paul and the Fight for Women's Rights: From the Vote to the Equal Rights Amendment," a compelling narrative that celebrates a pivotal leader in the quest for women's rights. Published on February 28, 2017, this book delves into Paul's influential role in the women's suffrage movement and her relentless pursuit of the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). After securing the vote for women in 1920, Paul didn't stop there; she authored the ERA to challenge laws discriminating against women, igniting a new wave of activism in the 1960s and '70s. Her strategic influence on the Civil Rights Act of 1964, introducing the "sex amendment," remains a critical legal tool against workplace discrimination. Perfect for elementary-school readers during Women's History Month, this inspirational book, rich with archival images and detailed notes, encourages young minds to reflect on gender equality, voting rights, and racial justice, inspiring the next generation of leaders and activists.
