One of the places that the suffrage movement helped to open to women—we always had a little tearoom always at our headquarters where most newspaper people used to come. The people that were doing the press for us were headed by Mrs. Florence Boeckel. They formed this Women’s Press Club, which now exists. It was formed there in our little tea house.
Miss Alice Paul

Wild West Women takes Tea with Alice and Me to Long Beach, CA; to one of the most prestigious and lovely theaters in Southern California, The Beverly O”Neill. Located in the Long Beach Convention complex, this intimate theather is celebrated with plays and operas. Hosted by Councilwoman, Jeannine Pearce, in celebration of Women’s History Month.

This multi-media one-woman stage presentation features Alice Paul scholar, Zoe Nicholson. With a backdrop of hundreds of photographs and newspaper clippings, Zoe tells the story of the great teacher of Nonviolent Direct Action and the incendiary thread of tea in the American Women’s Revolution; Seneca Falls: 1848 to Washington DC 2018. Zoe will dramatically and accessibly reveal the Alice Paul few know about, and share Paul’s tools for activism and how Zoe herself was ignited into activism.

Suffragist Miss Alice Paul was the first to bring non-violent, direct action to America, ten years before Gandhi and decades before Martin Luther King. She was the first to organize a march to the White House, leader of the activist branch of women’s suffrage movement, a picket who was forced fed. Author of the Era, and worker for Women’s Rights until her death at age 92! Her tactics, philosophy and experiences give us tools today for our own activism, righteous indignation, and passion to build a torch, light it, and carry it for Equality.
