On December 1, 2016, Eastern National opened a new sales outlet at Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument. Designated a new national monument by President Obama on April 12, 2016, the monument protects the iconic house that has served as the headquarters for the National Woman’s Party (NWP) since 1929.
The site is managed by National Mall and Memorial Parks, and Eastern National is working with the National Park Service and the NWP to create quality products that tell the story of the site.
The NWP was a community of women committed to political, social, and economic equality. Alva Belmont was a major benefactor and president of the party from 1920 to 1933. Alice Paul, founder of the NWP and one of the most influential leaders in the women’s rights movement of the 20th century, was instrumental in the final phase of the fight for the 19th Amendment guaranteeing women’s suffrage.
