This encore presentation of The Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument showcases a newly designated site declared a monument by President Obama in 2016. This was the original home of the National Women’s Party and holds the country’s first feminist library. Alice Paul and other suffragists moved into the house to lobby congress for the Equal Right’s Amendment. In order to gain lawmakers attention, the suffragists used tactics such as picketing the white house and putting on pageants to call for change. Although the fight for women’s equality is not over yet, the artifacts and treasures on display throughout this monument stand as a reminder of the movement.

The Blue Bubble

December 08, 2016 The Blue Bubble

By Sallie Bingham 

A dear friend told me the other day that she thinks we live in a blue bubble here in New Mexico. On the electoral map, New Mexico and Colorado show up as almost insignificant small blue squares in a sea of red, so unimportant on the national level we received almost no attention or visits during the previous election—which may be just as well. But before I give in to survivor’s guilt about being the beneficiary of blue, I want to take a minute to think why this happened.

Holy Family

December 05, 2016 Holy Family

By Sallie Bingham

As we try to make sense of what has happened and what is likely to happen, I keep hearing the phrase “The American Dream”—the mantra of the conservatives. I never believed it existed—what dream does?—but a commentator whose name I didn’t hear on NPR today advanced the opinion that it did exist—once—in a golden period of prosperity from the end of the war that created it in 1945 to the revelations of Watergate in 1973.
