Praise

★ ”Kops’ engaging narrative is as insightful about the history of the fight for women’s rights as it is about Paul’s many remarkable achievements…A rich, fascinating, and inspiring account of a tireless champion …this lucid, inspiring portrait reveals her noteworthy contributions to women’s rights.” – Kirkus Reviews, starred review

★ ”Young activists could learn a lot from this clear, engaging biography, which makes excellent use of primary sources and contains a number of black-and-white photographs. An extensive bibliography provides further resources for students interested in digging up more on the secret of (Alice) Paul’s success: keep changing the delivery method while holding fast to the message.” –Booklist, starred review

“Alice Paul may be a lesser-known warrior for women’s suffrage, but as Kops unequivocally reveals in this thorough biography, she was no less passionate or determined. The author convincingly recreates charged episodes…all building to the eventual passage of the Nineteenth Amendment in 1920. Archival photos and quotes…further illuminate the life of this indefatigable crusader.” – Publishers Weekly

“A welcome addition for collections seeking titles on the women’s suffrage movement…The author makes excellent use of Paul’s letters and journals to recreate her life for a high school audience.” – School Library Journal
