The Women's Studies Department at the University of Central Florida is teaming up with feminist organizations in their area to with the goal of creating America's first national holiday for women. We'd like to honor suffragist Alice Paul.
For those who don’t know, Paul founded the National Women’s Party in 1916, and is the author of the Equal Rights Amendment. Having a holiday in her honor would dispel many of the stereotypes surrounding the feminist movement, and educate American students about women’s history in much the same way Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s birthday does for the Civil Rights Movement.
We ask that those who sign also leave their e-mail address and the city where they are from so we can track our progress.
