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.
