“Conversations with Alice Paul: Woman Suffrage and the Equal Rights Amendment”

(1972)

Alice Paul did not produce a large body of written documents. Modern students of the woman’s suffrage and early feminist movements can gain insight into Paul’s values and beliefs from oral sources, including an interview, “Conversations with Alice Paul,” she gave in November of 1972, near the end of her life. In speaking with Amelia Fry, Paul provided personal insight into the push for women’s suffrage at the turn of the century and reflections on the controversy over the attempted passage of the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1960s and 1970s
