Good episode? Give it some love!
Utah women joined forces with a young suffragist named Alice Paul and jumpstarted the drive for suffrage with some spectacular events. A mile-long petition. The biggest parade Washington had ever seen. And, controversially, pickets and protests in front of the White House with signs demanding a constitutional amendment for women’s suffrage. When President Wilson got sick of the protests, the women were arrested and sent to prison. Host Dianna Douglas explains why seeing women arrested and abused in prison turned public opinion in favor of women’s suffrage, and how Utah celebrated when the Nineteenth Amendment finally passed.
