alice paul suffragist

Journalist Tina Cassidy joins Westerly Sun reporter Nancy Burns-Fusaro for a Q&A about her new book Mr. President, How Long Must We Wait?: Alice Paul, Woodrow Wilson, and the Fight for the Right To Vote. One hundred years after women in the United States were granted the right to vote, the name Paul’s name has largely been forgotten. She was a force to be reckoned with, though, leading suffragists in their fight against pigheaded president Woodrow Wilson and spearheading the first-ever pickets on the White House lawn. “This book should be required reading until Alice Paul becomes a household name,” raves Kirkus.
