Presentations

The Alice Paul Institute offers a variety of dynamic presentations about Alice Paul, her role in the U.S. suffrage movement, and her lifelong work for true and lasting gender equality in America and around the world.

Life of Alice Stokes Paul

Alice Paul was one of the most influential women in 20th-century America, leading the final fight for women’s suffrage and championing equal rights for women through most of the 20th century. Learn more about her in this program, which features a video on Alice’s life and a facilitated Q&A. We offer two options for this program: A 30-minute program featuring a 15-minute video and a 15-minute live Q&A ($125), and a 60-minute program features a 15-minute video and a 45-minute facilitated discussion ($250). 

Alice Paul: New Jersey’s Crusader for Equality

This presentation featuring original photographs from Alice Paul’s personal collection explores her long and influential life. Beginning with her roots in a traditional New Jersey Quaker community, and spanning her lifelong pursuit of Constitutional security for women, Crusader for Equality teaches about and celebrates one of America’s most important activists. We offer two options for this program: a 25-minute presentation that includes a single-use digital access code to the pre-recorded content ($125) and a 60-minute program featuring a presenter who will conclude the program with 30-minutes of Q&A and discussion ($250).

An Introduction to the Equal Rights Amendment

Learn about the progression of the Equal Rights Amendment, spanning the nearly century-long battle for its ratification. Gain a deeper understanding of the historical struggles as well as the present-day obstacles to finally enshrining gender equality in the U.S. Constitution. This presentation also includes a brief introduction to Alice Paul, leader of the final fight for women’s suffrage in the US and author of the Equal Rights Amendment. We offer two options for this program: a 30-minute program featuring a 20-minute presentation and a 10-minute Q&A ($125), and a 60-minute program featuring a 20 minutes presentation and a 40-minute facilitated discussion ($250).

Lead Like a Woman

Women have made huge strides towards equality in our personal and professional lives, but many of us still face external and internalized barriers to success. From inadequate accommodations for parents to the Glass Cliff to Imposter Syndrome, there are many obstacles on our path to social and professional equity. In “Lead like a Woman,” the Alice Paul Institute introduces effective leadership traits by first looking at the life of Alice Paul and the ways she succeeded and stumbled in her work. From there, we examine how many of the roadblocks Alice faced still promote systemic gender inequality and some of the ways we can combat that in our careers.

This 90-minute program includes a slide presentation and facilitated discussion with the Alice Paul Institute’s Executive and Program Directors ($500).
