The Great Suffrage Parade, which took place the day before Woodrow Wilson’s inauguration, was the first civil rights march to use the nation's capital as a backdrop. When Alice Paul came to Washington, D.C. in 1913, only six states allowed women the right to vote. Using this as her starting point, radio journalist Rebecca Roberts narrates the heroic struggle of Paul and the National Woman's Party as they fought for the vote.

This is his story, beginning with his early days in politics, to campaigning, to two terms of successful governing. He shares his vast store of examples to depict the skills that enable a city politician to lead effectively and illustrates how problem-solving pragmatism is essential for success.
