Listen: Author Jamie Stiehm '82 on "Alice Paul and the Woman's Suffrage Movement"
In March, in honor of Women’s History Month, the Swarthmore Delta Upsilon Fraternity brought author Jamie Stiehm '82 to campus to speak on "Alice Paul and the Woman’s Suffrage Movement." In her lecture, she discusses the life of Paul, a member of the Class of 1905 and one of Swarthmore’s most influential alums, who dedicated her career to achieving political equality for men and women alike.
At Swarthmore, Stiehm double-majored in government and history. She is currently an opinion columnist for Creators Syndicate, having previously contributed to a variety of publications such as NBCNews.com and The New York Times. Stiehm previously wrote about Paul for The Bulletin and appeared in a documentary on Swarthmore College founder Lucretia Mott.
