History of the National Woman's Party

Updated on December 21, 2016

The National Woman's Party

This hub provides information of historical significance to the women's suffrage movement. Alice Paul was the leader of this movement. Her home "Sewall-Belmont" House is a Museum and a National Historic Landmark.

- Jun. 2007

The Right to Vote

Women's right to vote was a long fought battle. Passed by Congress June 4, 1919, and ratified on August 18, 1920, the 19th amendment granted women the right to vote. The 19th amendment guarantees all American women the right to vote.

It will soon be the 100 year anniversary for that event in 2020. It is good to look back in history and honor those who made this happened.

Help find the missing flag banner!!!

One important artifact is a large banner flag with 36 stars which represent each of the states that ratified the 19th Amendment which gave women the right to vote.

This flag is missing and may very well be in someone's attic. If you think you know where this is located, please contact the Sewall-Belmont House Museum Collections Manager -

Jennifer Spencer

The flag is shown draped in the photograph below.

Here is a description "So when Alice Paul celebrated the day on which the 19th amendment was proclaimed law, it was with characteristic flair. A crowd of women gathered outside the ivy-covered National Woman's Party headquarters in Washington, D.C., as Paul unfurled a long, silk banner from the building's second- floor balcony.

Paul stood proudly over the banner--gold, white, and purple with a double row of stars down the middle, representing each of the 36 states that had ratified the amendment. Just days before, she had sewn on the last star--for Tennessee--herself. Among those at her side was Mabel Vernon '06, a good friend from Swarthmore and a fiery public speaker Paul had recruited to run the party's New York operation."...

      Maryan,

      Thanks for the compliment. I like part of the article. I am a Conservative and I do believe there are distinct differences between men and women. I am not a fan of the current feminist movement. I like to see NOW in a less radical position with regard to abortion and other issues.
