All digital page. Journaling reads: One could be forgiven for thinking Nina Otero and Alice Paul were sisters. They were in a way - sisters of the heart. Alice Paul began her campaign for womans suffrage about 50 years after the 1848 National Womans Rights convention in Seneca Falls, New York. First with the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWFA), her aggressive style proved too much, so she founded the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage, which became the National Womans Party (NWP) in 1916. Alice asked Nina to be the state leader of the NWP in New Mexico to which Nina replied, "I will keep out of the local fuss...but will take a stand and a firm one whenever necessary for I am with you now and always." And she did until her death in 1965. Alice worked tirelessly until her death in 1977 to bring the Quaker ideal of equality of the sexes to fruition. While her cherished 19th amendment was ratified, the Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) which took from 1923-1972 for congressional approval but was not ratified by the extended deadline. Today, the House approved an indefinite extension in 2021, but has yet to pass in the Senate.
