Browne on Adams and Keene, 'Alice Paul and the American Suffrage Campaign'

Katherine H. Adams, Michael L. Alice Paul and the American Suffrage Campaign. Urbana and Chicago: University of Illinois Press, There is an oft-cited urban legend about activist Alice Paul claiming that at the height of her militancy to obtain support for the Nineteenth Amendment she chained herself to the White House gates to get President Wilson's attention. Indeed, this story was one feature of a resolution sponsored by Representative Shelley Berkley D-NV "to promote awareness of the importance of the women suffragists who worked for the right of women to vote in the United States.

Past biographies, histories, and government documents have ignored Alice Paul's contribution to the women's suffrage movement, but this groundbreaking study scrupulously fills the gap in the historical record. Masterfully framed by an analysis of Paul's nonviolent and visual rhetorical strategies, Alice Paul and the American Suffrage Campaign narrates the remarkable story of the first person to picket the White House, the first to attempt a national political boycott, the first to burn the president in effigy, and the first to lead a successful campaign of nonviolence. Katherine H. Adams and Michael L. Keene also chronicle other dramatic techniques that Paul deftly used to gain publicity for the suffrage movement. Stunningly woven into the narrative are accounts of many instances in which women were in physical danger.
