    Where
    Hughes Main Library, 25 Heritage Green PL, Greenville, SC 29601 [ Map ]
    Description
    Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss Women's Suffrage and Alice Paul, the Iron-Jawed Angel with led by Melissa Walker, PhD Emerita George Dean Johnson, Jr. Professor of History at Converse College and author of nine books.

    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. In 1923 she proposed an Equal Rights Amendment to the Constitution. She fought for it until her death in 1977. A revised version was passed by Congress in 1974, but has yet to be ratified. – Let's talk about it.

    This event is NOT a costumed performance. (Leslie Goddard will perform as Alice Paul in the Chautauqua History Alive Festival June 15 -24.)
