The National Woman's Party (NWP), a leader in the campaign for women's suffrage and equal rights, is a nonprofit organization that owns, maintains and interprets the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum. The Sewall-Belmont House and Museum and the National Woman's Party are committed to preserving and interpreting NWP Founder Alice Paul's legacy - the achievement of women's equal rights - and telling the untold stories for the benefit of scholars, current and future generations of American's and all the world's citizens.

Description

The Sewall-Belmont House, a National Historic Landmark on Capitol Hill, is the headquarters of the historic National Woman's Party and one of the nation's premier women's history sites. For 43 years, it was the Washington home of the NWP's founder, Alice Paul, suffragist leader, author of the Equal Rights Amendment and lifelong activist for women's rights. With unparalleled archives and a collection of fine art and artifacts from the woman's suffrage and equal rights movements, the Sewall-Belmont House tells the inspiring and still unfinished story of women's quest for full equality. The Museum features public programs and docent-led tours highlighting original busts and portraits of the pioneers of the women's rights movement, suffrage parade banners, Susan B. Anthony's desk, political cartoons and historic photographs.
