This video spans 100 years of activism in 8 minutes. You will hear “Alice Paul” speak from the pulpit of First Presbyterian Church of Seneca Falls where, in 1923, she delivered the one sentence that is the basis of the current proposed Equal Rights Amendment. Alice Paul is portrayed by Rev Leah Ntuala, Pastor at this historic church.
