Alice Stokes Paul was the architect of some of the most outstanding political achievements on behalf of women in the 20th century. Born on January 11, 1885 to Quaker parents in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, Alice Paul dedicated her life to the single cause of securing equal rights for all women. A leading American suffragist, Alice Paul was a force in the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920, which granted women the right to vote. She authored the Equal Rights Amendment which, when ratified, will give legal and lasting equal protections to both women and men under the United States Constitution. Alice Paul will be featured on the newly redesigned $10 bill to be released by the U.S. Treasury in 2020, the centennial of the 19th Amendment.
