Summary
Alice Paul liked a good fight, especially when it came to women's rights. From the time she was a young woman, in the early 1900's, Alice dedicated herself to woman suffrage. Fearless and determined, Alice often landed in jail and went on hunger strikes for her beliefs. And she encouraged others to do the same. Even when women gained the right to vote in 1920, Alice did not give up fighting. Throughout her long life, she demanded that women be treated equally. The Equal Rights Amendment, which she wrote, has inspired generations of women. The author creates a vivid portrait of this relatively unknown but important early leader of the women's movement and the changing times in which she lived. Alice Paul, the fighter, is finally getting her due
