Alice Paul spent her whole life working for women's rights. She was born in 1885, when women could not vote, and most girls did not go to college. However, her parents thought education was important. Alice got a college degree in social work, and eventually went back to college for two law degrees. While Alice was studying in England, she started working with the suffragists, women who were fighting for a woman's right to vote. She continued her work for voting rights after she returned home to the United States. She was put in jail several times while marching for voting rights. Finally, in 1920, the Nineteenth Amendment, giving women the right to vote, was passed! After 1920, Alice worked for equal rights for all women around the world. She made sure that the charter for the United Nations included equal rights for all people. Part of the American Lives series.
