Alice Paul and Carrie Chapman Catt were fighting for the same women's rights in the mid 1900's but they were nothing a like.
Alice Paul was a radical Quaker who lead the more militant suffragists. She add an unseen energy to her movement. She had spent years earlier in England where she had worked with the more militant suffragist, Emily Pankherst. In 1913 she returned to the United States she established the Congressional Union within the NAWSA to lobby for a federal amendment. Paul became impatient with the slow pace and joined forces with western women voters to form the more militant National Women's Party. This party had a more aggressive and dramatic tactics that the United States had not seen from a suffragist group.
