    Hi Everyone -

    Please join us via webinar for our next free Department of the Interior Library Park Ranger Speaker Series lecture, entitled "The Mosaic of Equality" on Tuesday, August 16th from 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm ET.

    Alice Paul once said that women's equality movement is "sort of a mosaic." Everyone adds their own stone to the developing work. But Alice and other leaders of the movement didn't always appreciate the contributions of Black, Indigenous, Latina, Asian, and other women of color in the ongoing struggle for equality. Even after the passage of the 19th Amendment, women of color were often kept from the polls through a variety of tactics. They faced racial and ethnic discrimination and were often discouraged from voting via violence. Join Park Ranger Susan Philpott from the Belmont-Paul Women's Equality National Monument for a discussion about women who have challenged discrimination based on race and sex, which sometimes meant pushing white women's rights leaders to recognize and value their perspectives.
