Doris Stevens (1892 –1963) was an American Teacher, social worker and political suffragist. She organized and spoke for suffrage campaigns and acted as an executive committee member of the N.W.P (National Women’s Party). Arrested for picketing she was sentenced to 60 days in Occoquan workhouse, and later pardoned by President Woodrow Wilson. This led to the quintessential insider account of the imprisonment of N.W.P activists in Jailed for Freedom. Through descriptions of struggles and setbacks, Stevens tells the epic tale of the Women who fought to win the passage of the 19th Amendment.
