Bio

Alice Paul was a Quaker women from birth till death and had strong beliefs of womens rights and without her, the world would be in a different state for females. She became involved with women's rights movements and joined the NWSA and faced beatings and imprisonments to stand for what she believed in. With her help and the leader of NWSA, she brought up the idea of equality in females to males and then so passed the 19th Admendment. Clearing pathways for her generation of women and the future females to come, Alice has stood up for every female in the world that women can achieve the same as men and beyond.
