    Alice Paul- the woman who initiated and essentially got the 20th amendment to the constitution passed (for women’s right to vote). For a connection to you- Alice Paul also drafted the ERA (Equal Rights Amendment) which has still not been added to the constitution and women today are still fighting to get the exact amendment she drafted into the constitution.

    Alice Paul went on a famous hunger strike while imprisoned and was instrumental in gaining women the right to vote in the US. Hilary Swank plays her in a movie called “Iron-Jawed Angels.” You should check it out.

    Betty Friedan…she was really the first woman who wrote about the injustices that women endured. Another wonderful author and interesting woman is Germaine Geer. She wrote “The Female Eunuch” which is shocking and sadly still very relevant today.

    I don’t know if Rosa Parks counts as recent, but she’s a good choice.
