Put on the tea pot!

The power of a cup of tea in the suffrage movement is spelled out in this two-part series by Ken Florey, author of a book on suffrage memorabilia. See: Part #1. Part #2.

Alice Paul’s tea house, The Grated Door, also tied the tea room with organizing for the movement. For descriptions of The Grated Door, see selections from the Book, Jailed for Freedom by Doris Stevens.
