Women's Heritage TrailAlice Stokes Paul (1885-1977) was born and spent her childhood years in this farmhouse, Paulsdale. She grew up in a Quaker family with a tradition of activism in education and public service and a strong belief in equality. Alice Paul dedicated her entire life to the single cause of securing equal rights for all women. She founded the National Women's Party in 1914 and led the first picketers to the White House gates in the name of women's suffrage. When women won the right to vote in 1920, Paul turned her focus to the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA). From her wheelchair in a nursing home in nearby Moorestown, she lobbied Representatives to pass the ERA until her death in 1977. Paul worked for women's rights nationally and internationally and founded the World Women's Party in 1938 with its headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland. Alice Paul's legacy lives on here at Paulsdale, through the work of the Alice Paul Institute.
