Happy Birthday, Alice Paul

Today is the 131st birthday of Alice Paul. The leader of the National  Women’s Party, Alice fought tirelessly to get American women the right to vote.

She passed away in 1977, not knowing that future generations of women will forever owe a huge debt of gratitude to her.

Happy Birthday, Ms. Paul. Wherever you are you, thank you. The world that I know and the opportunities that I have would not have existed without you.
