The essay covering women’s suffragist talked about the events that took place after the founders of the movement became too old to continue to advocate for women’s right to vote. Now a new generation of six young, well bred women stepped up to continue the work of Susan B. Anthony. These six women were members of the National Women’s Party and were led by the influential Alice Paul.
In the essay, William and Mary Lavender explained the struggles that Alice Paul and the suffragist faced while marching in Washington. They tried to urge President Woodrow Wilson to adopt the Susan B. Anthony Amendment and give women the right to vote. However, Wilson thought that it was a nuisance and kept making excuses to put off addressing the amendment to Congress.
