Alice Paul Award
The Alice Paul Awards are given each year to an American University faculty member, staff member, student, and alumni who demonstrate a commitment to continuing Alice Paul’s vision for women’s full equality. Alice Paul, an American University Washington College of Law alumna, was a leader in the suffrage movement. She authored the Equal Rights Amendment, served as president of the National Woman’s Party, and played a vital role in the passage of the 19th Amendment. We present these awards to members of the American University community who best exemplify Alice Paul's spirit, work, and vision.
