Standing strong on Capitol Hill for more than 200 years, this house witnessed the construction of the U.S. Capitol and Supreme Court, and its early occupants participated in the formation of Congress. In 1929, the National Woman's Party (NWP) purchased the house, and it soon evolved into a center for feminist education and social change. For more than sixty years, the trailblazing NWP utilized its strategic location, steps from the U.S. Capitol and its Congressional offices,
to lobby for women's political, social and economic equality. Today, an expansive collection of artifacts from the suffrage and equal rights campaigns brings the story of the Women's Rights movement to life. The innovative tactics and strategies these women devised became the blueprint for women's progress throughout the 20th century.
