The American Historical Theatre presents Susan B. Anthony, portrayed by Marjorie Goldman, and Alice Paul, portrayed by Taylor Williams, Esq.. They converse across the ages on their valiant struggles for:
- Women’s Suffrage
- an Equal Rights Amendment
- equal and civil rights under the Unites States Constitution
In 1872 Susan B. Anthony was arrested for casting a vote in the Presidential election. The following year, she and Elizabeth Cady Stanton penned what would be the framework for the 19th Amendment, Woman Suffrage. Near the end of Susan Anthony's life another young woman stepped forward and devoted herself to the cause of equal and civil rights. New Jersey native Alice Paul carried the torch, finally seeing the passage of the 19th Amendment in 1920. In 1923 Alice Paul introduced the first Equal Rights Amendment.
