1885 - 1977

Suffragist Alice Stokes Paul (1885-1977) advocated a more militant strategy for the woman suffrage movement, which was decades old when she came along, and short on victories. With others she founded the National Woman's Party.

She and her colleagues soon organized a huge demonstration for March 3, 1913, the day before Woodrow Wilson's first presidential inauguration. Thousands of women came to Washington to march along Pennsylvania Avenue from the Capitol to the White House, and the demonstrations continued until they'd converted Wilson to their cause. The 19th Amendment, grandting women the vote, was ratified in 1920.
