Celebrate Women’s Equality Day at Paulsdale with the Alice Paul Institute! Equality Day is every August 26th is the date that commemorates the 1920 certification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution which granted women the right to vote. This was the culmination of a massive, peaceful civil rights movement by women that had its formal beginnings in 1848 at the world’s first women’s rights convention, in Seneca Falls, New York. The Alice Paul Institute is housed at the Mount Laurel home of Alice Paul, an American suffragist and equal rights activist who led the final fight to get the 19th Amendment ratified.
