Alice Paul

Alice Paul, leader of the National Woman's Party (previously, the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage) raises a glass in front of a banner with thirty-six handsewn stars that indicate the thirty-six states that ratified the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which gave women the right to vote. This photograph was taken not long after Tennessee became the last of the thirty-six states necessary to ratify the amendment on August 26, 1920.
