Alice Stokes Paul
Women's Heritage Trail
"I never doubted that equal rights was the right direction. Most reforms, most problems are complicated. But to me there is nothing complicated about ordinary equality." --Alice Paul (in an interview from 1972)
Paulsdale is on the New Jersey Women's Heritage Trail because of the significant contributions of suffragist Alice Stokes Paul to women's voluntary organizations and reform movements.
The New Jersey Women's Heritage Trail highlights a collection of historic sights located around the state that represent the significant contributions women made to the history of our state. The Heritage Trail brings to life the vital role of women in New Jersey's past and present.
