Happy Birthday Alice Paul....

Along with Lucy Burns (a close friend) and others, she led a successful campaign for women's suffrage that resulted in the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920.*

Thank you for that, Alice. Where would Hillary (and all of us females) be without you?

"There will never be a new world order until women are a part of it."

“I never doubted that equal rights was the right direction.
Most reforms, most problems are complicated.
But to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality.”
