Women's Civil Rights

Overview

By Malia Svoboda

Alice Paul was previously a part of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, NAWSA. In 1916, she left and formed the Congressional Union and later the National Woman's Party, NWP. During this movement, Alice Paul and her other activists in her organization ended up in prison, went on hunger strikes, and other difficult tasks before getting this amendment passed in 1920.
