In 2012, three young women created a documentary about Alice Paul for a school project. Joyce Wang, Olivia Hu and Ingrid Ma decided to focus on women’s suffrage and the result is a fantastic ten-minute video chronicling Alice Paul’s fight for equality.
It’s a wonderful way to learn about the struggles and triumphs women have endured for the right to vote; a right that should have belonged to women from the beginning.
Joyce Wang told Liberals Unite:
“Throughout high school, we were all part of the National History Day Club. We wanted to pick a topic that was unique, not too well-known, and fairly easy for us to research. Since the Alice Paul Institute is right here in New Jersey, where we’re all from, and a couple of archives in Washington D.C. have primary documents about Alice Paul, we decided to choose Alice Paul.
We all attended West Windsor-Plainsboro High School North in New Jersey; we made this documentary during our junior year. Now we’re all currently rising juniors in college. I’m twenty years old and go to Rutgers University at New Brunswick Campus, Ingrid (nineteen) goes to Johns Hopkins, and Olivia (nineteen) goes to NYU.”
Olivia Hu added:
“I’m currently a third-year student at the New York University Stern School of Business in Manhattan, NY. My two majors are Marketing and Management. I’m also minoring in Sociology through NYU’s College of Arts and Science.
I admit I didn’t know much about women’s suffrage when I first began this National History Day project. Several years later, I have become very interested in and passionate about the feminist movement. I keep as up-to-date as possible with relevant news stories. I’ve been following UniteWomen.org for a long time now and am always eager to read what they post!”
