About Author

Doris Stevens

Doris Stevens was an American suffragist, author, and supporter for women's legal rights. She was the first female member of the American Institute of International Law and the inaugural chair of the Inter-American Commission of Women. Stevens, born in 1888 in Omaha, Nebraska, became interested in the suffrage movement while attending Oberlin College. After earning her sociology degree in 1911, she temporarily taught before working as a paid regional organizer for the National American Woman Suffrage Association's Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage (CUWS). When the CUWS broke away from the parent organization in 1914, Stevens took over as national strategist. She was in charge of organizing the women's congress at the Panama Pacific Exposition in 1915. When the CUWS was renamed the National Woman's Party (NWP) in 1916, Stevens organized party delegates in each of the 435 Congressional Districts in an effort to achieve national women's enfranchisement and defeat politicians who opposed women's rights.
