Alice Paul, Iron-Jawed Angel, performed by Leslie Goddard, from Chicago IL. Music by: Don Pedi.
Hear her stories of courage – ask her how she survived. You’ll laugh – you’ll cry – you’ll have lots of questions. And they’ll be answered.
Bring your stories. Share your experiences. Get inspired. Because it’s not just history – it’s personal.
How did a nice young Quaker woman with BA from Swarthmore and an MA & PhD from U Penn, end up being force-fed in a city jail and confined to a prison psychiatric ward? As the psychiatrist who examined her said: “Courage in women is often mistaken for Insanity.”
Alice Paul and her “Silent Sentinels” were beaten, jailed and force-fed on their crusade to obtain the right to vote for American women. Their charge for arrest: blocking traffic.
