Day 9 (Ladies Dancing) seems right to highlight the Sewall-Belmont House & Museum, which celebrates womens progress toward equalityand explores the evolving role of women and their contributions to societythrough educational programs, tours, exhibits, research and publications.
The historic National Womans Party (NWP), a leader in the campaign for equal rights and womens suffrage, owns, maintains and interprets the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum, which 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.
As a board member at Sewall-Belmont, I am especially proud of the great programming that is done at the house focusing on the critical role of women in public life. Next time tou Are on Capitol Hill, I encourage you to stop in and take a look, and shop in the great gift shop!
