Alice Paul: Equality for Women shows the dominant and unwavering role Paul played in the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, granting the vote to American women. The dramatic details of Paulís imprisonment and solitary confinement, hunger strike, and force-feeding at the hands of the U.S. government illustrate her fierce devotion to the cause she spent her life promoting. Placed in the context of the first half of the twentieth century, Paulís story also touches on issues of progressivism and labor reform, race and class, World War I patriotism and Americaís emerging role as a global power, womenís activism in the political sphere, and the global struggle for womenís rights.

About the Lives of American Women series:
Selected and edited by renowned womenís historian Carol Berkin, these brief biographies are designed for use in undergraduate courses. Rather than a comprehensive approach, each biography focuses instead on a particular aspect of a womenís life that is emblematic of her time, or which made her a pivotal figure in the era. The emphasis is on a ďgood read,Ē featuring accessible writing and compelling narratives, without sacrificing sound scholarship and academic integrity. Primary sources at the end of each biography reveal the subjectís perspective in her own words. Study questions and an annotated bibliography support the student reader.
