Alice Paul and the Fight for Women's Rights : From the Vote to the Equal Rights Amendment
by Deborah Kops




Overview -
Perfect for Women's History Month, here is the story of the extraordinary Alice Paul, a leader in the long struggle for votes for women.

Alice Paul made a significant impact on both the woman's suffrage movement--the long struggle for votes for women--to the second wave, when women demanded full equality with men. After women won the vote in 1920, Paul wrote the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA), which would make all the laws that discriminated against women unconstitutional. Passage of the ERA became the rallying cry of a new movement of young women in the 1960s and '70s. Paul saw another chance to advance women's rights when the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1964 began moving through Congress. She set in motion the sex amendment, which remains a crucial legal tool for helping women fight discrimination in the workplace. A true girl power book for today's young women, the title includes archival images, an author's note, a bibliography, and source notes.
