Capehart Scatchard is pleased to announce that Managing Shareholder, Mary Ellen Rose, Esq., will be a 2017 recipient of the Alice Paul Equality Award. The annual award is given by the Alice Paul Institute located in Mount Laurel, New Jersey.
The award is named in memory of Alice Stokes Paul who was born in Mount Laurel in 1885. Alice Paul was a women’s rights activist who played a key role in the women’s suffrage movement that led to the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution in 1920. After the passage of the 19th Amendment, she continued to fight for women’s equality and was active in the movement until her death in 1977.
The Alice Paul Equality Award is given to individuals from any industry or field who capture the spirit of Alice Paul, and as a consequence, either directly or indirectly, continue Alice’s mission of advancing women’s equality in America.
Ms. Rose, a lifelong resident of New Jersey, focuses her practice in the areas of commercial and business law, transportation, and franchise law. She received her undergraduate degree magna cum laude from West Virginia University and her law degree from Rutgers University School of Law in Camden. She is admitted to practice in New Jersey and Pennsylvania.
