Overview

Home to the National Woman's Party for more than 90 years, this was the epicenter of the struggle for women's rights.

From this house in the shadow of the U.S. Capitol and Supreme Court, Alice Paul and the NWP developed innovative strategies and tactics to advocate for the Equal Rights Amendment and equality for women.

President Barack Obama designated the national monument on April 12, 2016.
