Mission Statement:

The Sewall-Belmont House and Museum celebrates women’s progress toward equality—and explores the evolving role of women and their contributions to society—through educational programs, tours, exhibits, research and publications.

The historic National Woman’s Party (NWP), a leader in the campaign for equal rights and women’s suffrage, owns, maintains and interprets the Sewall-Belmont House and Museum. One of the premier women’s history sites in the country, this National Historic Landmark 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. The Sewall-Belmont House and Museum and the National Woman’s Party are committed to preserving 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 Americans, and all the world’s citizens.
