    It s so great to see a YA book about Alice Paul Her work has influenced all of our lives in profound ways, and yet most people have never heard of her Kops does a terrific job of showing just how much work suffragists did, and how much they sacrificed, to earn women the right to vote Too many of us take that right for granted.

    Written for YAs but equally good for adults Alice Paul was a radical suffragist who never stopped advocating for women s rights.

    This books fills a much needed place in the middle school literature on Alice Paul, although in truth I d easily recommend this book to adults as well Paul s name is shockingly unknown to most Americans, so it fills a niche right there But she s also a somewhat difficult person to write about, since so little is known of her personal life She was notoriously secretive about her private life, leaving biographers mostly to focus on her public life as she undoubtedly intended Dobs does a nice job p [...]

    A good overview of the feminist leader, Alice Paul, and her work on improving women s lives Its part biography, but mainly a history of Paul s role in the women s rights movement I appreciated the detail and the stories, as well as the author s decision to tell the story from beginning to end There are some good notes at the end of the book, too This would be a good choice for young adults looking for an interesting American biography.

    ARC provided by the publisher at ALAIn this very timely book, the story of Alice Paul s life is interwoven with the women s movement in the same way that Paul s life was interwoven with her work Giving just the right amount of information about Paul s early life, Kops paints a colorful picture of a driven and pioneering woman who saw an injustice and dedicated herself to righting it The most amazing thing to me was that Paul was just slightly older than my grandmother, but managed to graduate fr [...]

    I thoroughly enjoyed this nonfiction account of Alice Paul s work on behalf of women s rights What a determined woman she was, and what a lot of good she did Whether one agrees with her methods or not, one has to admit that Paul left her mark on the work She never gave up fighting for rights she believed women should have And while not always successful, her efforts shouldn t be forgotten I thought it was interesting how the author turned what was originally intended to be a biography into an hi [...]

    Despite plenty of middle school appropriate sources for suffragettes Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B Anthony, their sister activist, Alice Paul, seems to have garnered much less press How fortuitous that this book has come along to admirably fill that gap Starting with Paul s birth in New Jersey in 1885, through her arrests and hunger strikes in both Britain and the US, and her efforts to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, Paul s accomplishments are revealed Extensively detailed end notes inclu [...]

    A real eye opener Learned there was to suffarege than I first believed Young women today have no clue about what these women went through to earn us not only the vote but equal rights The fight to get woman the vote dates back to 1848 the ERA was not ratified until 1972 The NOW movement as well as the EEOC laws had a huge impact on the passing of the ERA Alice Paul,as well as other factual books on the Suffragettes should be read by every young woman coming up today As we all know,the fight for [...]

    I knew there were a lot of women who made it possible for women to finally win the right to vote, but I had never heard of Alice Paul before, and now I know that the vote for women was in large part because of her This book opened my eyes It is well written, too, which is always a bonus It has an excellent bibliography and pages upon pages of source notes These lend even credibility to this book as a useful tool for young researchers.My library says this book is for Juniors or middle grade read [...]

    Maureen M
    This quick read biography helped me understand the hunger strikes and picketing scenes from a recent documentary film about WWI and Woodrow Wilson I knew little about Paul, in spite of her impact on the women s movement This gave me new appreciation for her and a better understanding of the political forces inside and outside the women s movement in the early fight for women s rights, and how they echoed even into the movement in my day Indefatigable and uncompromising, Paul proves the saying, W [...]

    I learned some things I didn t know here First of all, I really feel like Alice Paul s name gets lost among all the other women s rights pioneers Carrie Chapman Catt, Susan B Anthony, Elizabeth Cady Stanton etc I knew about the practice of force feeding suffragettes on hunger strikes, but the Night of Terror was new information This was maybe not the best read, but it did make me want to learn .

    Katie
    A lot of good information Concise, but still an interesting narrative Doesn t shy away from pointing out that Alice Paul was hardcore about women s rights but incredibly wishy washy, if not just silent, about rights for African American women.

    Catherine Yezak
    A very good reference book I am not sure how many teens would read it.

    Patricia Powell
    clear, well documented, well researched.

    Edward Sullivan
    Reviewed for professional publication.

    Suzanne
    We ve all heard of Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B Anthony and Emmeline Pankhurst and their efforts on behalf of suffrage for women But in the rush to cover all the topics in the history curriculum standards, they may be the only figures that are introduced in class The new biography of Alice Paul will expand library collections and offer those interested in the suffragettes a new heroine to learn about From her first introduction to the topic in a lecture by Christabel Pankhurst, to details on [...]

    An important book that fills an empty space in many collections feminist history in YA Alice Paul and her fellow activists stories were riveting and eye opening so much history that I was unaware of and the book impelled me to appreciate the movement that much .

    Fred
    An excellent biography of a woman about whom I knew nothing It turns out that Alice Paul was the driving force behind the constitutional amendment granting women the right to vote and she is the author of the text for the Equal Rights Amendment, first proposed in the 1920s and later resurrected, and defeated, sadly, in the 1970 s A tireless worker, propagandist, advocate, agitator, her story was also told in the movie Iron Jawed Angels, which I now have to watch again The only quibble I have is [...]

    Cori Arnold
    A most excellent detailed summary of events Pulling so much detail for my project

    Jennifer
    Interesting and contained a lot of good information I thought the story dragged a bit in a couple of places, but overall, a good book.

    Noelle Boc
    An excellent piece of non fiction for middle graders on both women s rights and the non stop activist, Alice Paul I knew very little about Paul before I read this book I came away amazed at her lifelong pursuit of achieving equal rights for women both in America and internationally Her tireless work gave women in this country the rights they have today, and as one person stated, every time she walked into a voting booth, she thanked Alice Paul One of the best things about this book is that it go [...]

    I found this book inspiring and educational I was not aware that the Equal Rights Amendment was not ratified I am definitely purchasing this book for the middle school library.
