Alice Paul, American feminist and women’s rights activist, shakes the hand of “youngest Colorado feminist” Mildred Bryan.

Paul was vice president of the National Woman’s Party, a group that fought for women’s suffrage.

edit: per lipsredasroses’ comment, I took the description from the LOC title, which was transcribed from the original photo. I’m wondering if maybe at that particular time (1923) she was vice president, as opposed to president? Otherwise, just an oops.
