Overview and metadata sections

Born in Boston in 1861 of New England Quakers, Alice Park's activism grew from her concerns for woman's suffrage, humane education and peace. She travelled and lectured extensively on these topics, and represented the Women's International League for Peace and Freedom on the Henry Ford Peace Ship, 1915-1916. She was a pacifist, Socialist, vegetarian, and a member of the Humane Society, National Child Labor Committee, and the Housewives Union. Much of her public life was as a suffragist both in the United States and Great Britain.
