AMERICAN UNIVERSITY's Women & Politics Institute and Women’s Initiative recently named ALLIANCE FOR WOMEN IN MEDIA (AWM) President ERIN M. FULLER as the Alumni recipient of the 2010 - 2011 ALICE PAUL AWARD. This award is presented to people who exemplify the spirit, work, and vision of AMERICAN UNIVERSITY alumna ALICE PAUL, a leading activist in the Suffrage Movement who played a vital role in the passage of the 19th Amendment.
"This award is deeply meaningful to me, first, because of my alumni connection to AMERICAN UNIVERSITY," said FULLER. "Second, I have partnered with the WOMEN & POLITICS INSTITUTE on a number of projects, and know their work to be so important. Finally, receiving an award named for the great ALICE PAUL is an incredible honor, especially as her work towards equality is still very much in progress today."
