This book introduces young readers to Alice Paul, the suffragist and women's rights activist. Readers will learn of Paul's fierce efforts to win the right to vote for women, including putting together a parade in Washington, DC, organizing protesters outside the White House, and directly confronting President Wilson on the matter of women's suffrage. The author connects these efforts to Paul's youth, a time when she sneaked candy, chased chickens, and threw mud balls.


Watercolor and color pencil illustrations portray Paul with lively movement and color as she is shown leading a parade of 8,000 women, protesting outside the White House gate, and even being hauled off to jail by the police for refusing to leave the grounds.
