The Importance of Voting. Alice Paul Institute Programs.
Voting is a right that should not be taken for granted. As citizens of the United States, the right to vote gives us a say in who represents us on the federal and state level. While voting allows each individual to have their voices heard, this was not always the case. Until the year 1920, women did not have the right to vote. Alice Paul, born in 1885 in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, was a leader in the twentieth-century women's suffrage movement. She was a major figure in helping the 19th amendment pass in 1919, which granted women the right to vote in 1920.
Alice Paul Institute, a non-profit organization based in Mount Laurel, New Jersey, continues the work of Alice Paul by supporting and raising awareness of women's rights and gender equality through education and leadership. Explore the many programs Alice Paul Institute has to offer!
