From Alumna and Activist Alice Paul to the Women's March on Washington
As recently noted by author Jamie Stiehm '82, the audacious 1913 suffrage parade - organized by Alice Paul, Class of 1905 - bends in an arc toward the 2017 Women’s March on Washington. Read her full article, "The Women’s March marks the rebirth of a fight that began long ago," in The Washington Post.
Stiehm has written frequently about Paul, who she once described in The Bulletin as "one of the greatest alumnae in the American history pantheon." In 2015, she also spoke on campus about Paul and the women's suffrage movement; listen to her talk.
At Swarthmore, Stiehm double-majored in government and history. She is currently an opinion columnist for Creators Syndicate, having previously contributed to NBCNews.com and The New York Times, among other media outlets. Stiehm is also featured in a documentary on Swarthmore College founder Lucretia Mott.
