This biography was written by members of the Alice Paul Institute, so I think the source is reliable. On the bottom of the page the Institute ensures its reliability,it “received an operating support grant from the New Jersey Historical Commission, a division of the Department of State.” . Although the site didn’t include citations it provided numerous links for further research about Alice Paul, especially the link to one of her later interviews was very insightful. The biography itself was very detailed, it analyzed all aspects of her life. For me it was most helpful to read how she became the determined Suffragist and Feminist she was when she came back to America from England. The photos of Alice Paul and quotations from her interviews made everything more vivid and it showed her actual character. The Website itself was easily accessible, the editors tried to show a most realistic and positive Alice Paul to everyone, for example they have a children’s version of the biography, which I read first to get the basic history of her life and her major successes and acts.
