Alice Paul coins

I love the idea of someone like Alice Paul being celebrated. I think more effort should go into educating and increasing awareness for those who made a positive difference on history. The coin is being released with the presidential coins and first spouse coins, which frankly I see as pointless. Everyone knows who the presidents are and they get enough appreciation. She is being grouped together with all the presidents’ wives, which I don’t think is fair to her. She fought hard, and most of the First Ladies are only famous for who they married. Most made a positive difference, but only did so because they were in a position to persuade. We need to celebrate more people like Alice Paul.
