Alice Paul

By: Lily DeLoma

Problem

- "... to pressure governments to expand women's rights through international organizations such as the League of Nations and its sucessor, the United Nations."

The problem was that women weren't being treated fair like men and they didn't have the right to vote. Alice Paul wanted to help every single American women to help make that happen.

"Earning a reputation as a tireless and demanding activist, Paul organized teams of women from around the world to lobby representatives in Washington D.C"
