Alice Paul, A Suffragist for Today: Moving Forward, Looking Back

This book is about Alice Paul
"Alice Paul, A Suffragist for Today: Moving Forward, Looking Back" casts a revelatory light on a pivotal figure in the fight for women's suffrage in the United States. Published on April 7, 2020, this compelling narrative delves into the life of Alice Paul, a relentless advocate whose tactics and resilience mirrored those of global peace activists like Gandhi. Growing from a privileged Quaker upbringing, her encounters with key militants in England transformed her into a formidable force in the American suffrage movement, known as the "Iron Jawed Angels." The book not only recounts her strategic battles against figures ranging from street harassers to President Woodrow Wilson but also addresses her internal conflicts with racial biases and opposition from within the suffragist ranks. Tailored for high-school readers, this exploration of gender equality, voting rights, and racial justice encourages reflection on modern issues such as wage disparity, religious parity, and the ongoing relevance of movements like #MeToo. What strategies from Alice Paul's life could effectively address today's social justice challenges?
