A TTC Documentary: The Belmont Paul Women's Equality National Monument

March 03, 2017

This week on a special documentary episode of To The Contrary, Bonnie Erbe explores the historic Belmont Paul Women’s Equality National Monument, the final headquarters of the National Woman’s Party. Declared a national monument in 2016 by President Barack Obama, the 200-year-old home sitting on Capitol Hill in Washington D.C. is a treasure trove of the Women’s Suffrage Movement.

By: Sallie Bingham 

A Native American fable tells of the hummingbird that was able to put out a raging forest fire with one beakful of water at a time.
