National Woman's Party
The National Woman’s Party at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument, on Capitol Hill in Washington DC, celebrates women’s progress toward equality—and explores the evolving role of women and their contributions to society—through educational programs, tours, exhibits, research and publications.
The historic National Woman’s Party (NWP), a leader in the campaign for equal rights and women’s suffrage, owns, maintains and interprets the collection. One of the premier women’s history sites in the country, this National Monument houses an extensive collection of suffrage banners, archives and artifacts documenting the continuing effort by women and men of all races, religions, and backgrounds to win voting rights and equality for women under the law.
The National Woman’s Party is committed to preserving the legacy of Alice Paul, founder of the NWP and author of the Equal Rights Amendment, and telling the untold stories for the benefit of scholars, current and future generations of Americans, and all the world’s citizens.
