Description

Stevens was a suffragist and advocate for the legal rights of women. After splitting from the National American Woman’s Suffrage Association due to differences of opinion over political tactics, the National Woman’s Party organized the first picket in January 1917.Participants in the demonstrations found themselves, fined, jailed, and sent to workhouses, their behavior deemed “unpatriotic” during a time of war. Doris was arrested at the picket and served part of her sentence at the Occoquan Workhouse. The resulting treatment of these women increased publicity and support for the cause.
