Alice Paul Institute Receives National Woman’s Party Trademarks

We have important news this morning! The closing of the Centennial year brings another action by the National Woman’s Party (NWP) to sustainably safeguard the NWP’s legacy in the years to come.

After the completion of the historic gift of its collection to the Library of Congress and to the National Park Service, the NWP’s Board of Directors has decided to dissolve the NWP as an independent nonprofit and will transfer its remaining assets to the Alice Paul Institute which shares the NWP’s heritage and mission of advancing women’s equality. You can read more about this transfer here: https://bit.ly/3o1rGnS

On behalf of the entire Board of Directors, thank you for your long support of the National Woman’s Party. We sincerely hope that you will continue your engagement through the Alice Paul Institute, which will continue to reflect the National Woman’s Party legacy and its quest for full equality.

Today's article on the NWP collections gift to the National Park Service and Library of Congress really captures so much of what we treasure about these materials-- and why their preservation is so important. https://www.washingtonpost.com/history/2020/10/25/womens-history-donation-vote-suffrage/

The National Woman’s Party said it is donating a large collection of artifacts, many from the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument in D.C., to the federal government.

A Conversation with U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg and the National Woman's Party

The National Woman’s Party mourns the loss of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg. A jurist of extraordinary stature, Justice Ginsburg is a role model to generations of women and girls. A courageous champion of justice and equality for all, she has had a profound and lasting impact on the law and particularly on the rights of women.

Justice Ginsburg leaves behind a powerful and historic legacy. Legal equality for everyone is more enshrined in the law because of her brilliant and fierce advocacy. We are all better off because of her work.

A friend of the National Woman’s Party, Justice Ginsburg honored us by leading a convening of women’s rights organizations on Women’s Equality Day in 2018. We honor the work and the legacy of Justice Ginsburg and send our heartfelt condolences to her family. May her memory be a blessing.

Next Week - Women Are Poetry In Motion -- Every Day in Every Way Hosted by Esther Productions Inc and Led by Ms. Joy Jones Feb 27, 10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EST online event Register for Women Are Poetry In Motion -- Every Day in Every Way at www.estherproductionsinc.com/events-1/women-are-poetry-in-motion-every-day-in-every-way This 60-minute writing workshop is designed for adult women to learn more about poetry writing techniques but also to become more intimate with their own personal stories and history. Led by award-winning author and performance artist Joy Jones, participants will also come to understand and appreciate the power of poetry to heal, inspire and provide an opportunity for celebration of self, family and community. “Joy Jones is a trainer, performance poet, playwright and author of several books including Private Lessons: A Book of Meditations for Teachers; Tambourine Moon, which was selected as one of the best books for children by the black caucus of the ALA and featured on the Bernie Mac Show; and Fearless Public Speaking. She has won awards for her writing from the D. C. Commission on the Arts & Humanities, and the Colonial Players Promising Playwrights Competition, plus awards from both the D. C. Department of Recreation & Parks and the D. C. Commission on National & Community Service for outstanding community service. Joy Jones’ provocative op-ed on marriage trends for The Washington Post, “Marriage is for White People”, went viral. She is the director of the arts organization, The Spoken Word, and the founder of the Double Dutch team, DC Retro Jumpers, which has led exhibitions and classes throughout metropolitan Washington and abroad. Joy often leads workshops on creative writing, communications and black history.” Esther Productions, Inc. is a Washington, DC-based national nonprofit organization. Founded in 2004, it is dedicated to inspiring and empowering girls and women. It is supported through generous contributions from Kerry S.
