S29 Ep8: Alice Paul: The Suffragist

  • Aired: 04/10/2017

  • Rating: NR
When the United States entered the Great War in 1917, all Americans were expected to get in line to support the war efforts at home and abroad. But suffragist Alice Paul would not comply. Paul and her National Woman’s Party refused to put their campaign for suffrage on hold, publicly calling out the hypocrisy of President Woodrow Wilson’s desire to make the world “safe for democracy."
