The Women's Suffrage Movement in NJ and the Work of Alice Paul

   2020 marks the centennial of women's suffrage in the United States. Why did it take so long and how did we finally get there? 

     This program will bring to life the struggle of the suffragists in their effort to bring the vote to American women.

 New Jersey women were a prime force in moving the amendment forward, with marches, protests, and jail time.  You will learn about this struggle and the role of New Jersey suffragist Alice Paul in securing the passage of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution in 1920. 

        The presenter is  Linda Barth who worked with the statewide committee planning events to observe and celebrate the centennial of the 19th Amendment. She has been a fan of New Jersey for a long time. A lifelong resident of the Garden State, Linda has written two books on the D&R Canal and three children’s picture books, Bridgetender’s Boy, Hidden New Jersey, and Alice Paul: Champion of Women’s Rights. She has also authored A History of Inventing in New Jersey: From Thomas Edison to the Ice Cream Cone and New Jersey Originals. With her husband she has published The Millstone Valley Through Time and Somerville Through Time. She has also contributed to the Encyclopedia of New Jersey.

     Linda Barth spent 45 years in the Bridgewater-Raritan School District, teaching fourth grade and then substituting after retirement. She is the executive director of the League of Historical Societies of New Jersey and president of the D&R Canal Watch, a friends organization of the D&R Canal State Park.

Free and open to all.
