    The 72-year struggle for American women to win the right to vote was the greatest nonviolent revolution in the history of our country. Three generations of women and the men who supported their efforts persevered to include American women in the Constitution.

    Paula F. Casey of Memphis, Tennessee, has dedicated more than 30 years to educating the public about the woman suffrage movement, especially Tennessee's pivotal role in the 19th Amendment's ratification in 1920. She produced a video in 1989 entitled "Generations: American Women Win the Vote," and helped publish the book, The Perfect 36: Tennessee Delivers Woman Suffrage. She had the book made into an e-book and audiobook read by the co-author, Dr. Jan Sherman, in 2013. She has been instrumental in getting public art about the suffragists placed across Tennessee. She served on the state committee that selected the bas relief plaque that hangs inside the State Capitol Building in 1998. The Tennessee Woman Suffrage Monument was unveiled in Nashville's Centennial Park in August 2016 while she was president. She served as fiscal agent for the Sue Shelton White statue in front of Jackson's City Hall. She chaired the Memphis Suffrage Monument committee which unveiled its monument, "Equality Trailblazers," facing the Mississippi River by the University of Memphis law school. She co-founded the Tennessee Woman Suffrage Heritage Trail and urges all states to tell their suffrage stories with heritage trails.
