This week students in Mr. Canedo’s junior history classes visited the Belmont Paul Women’s Equality National Monument to honor the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, granting women the right to vote throughout the nation. As part of the class’s unit on the women’s suffrage movement, students visited the museum at the site of the National Woman’s Party (NWP) headquarters. The NWP, established in 1916,  played a central role in the passage of the 19th Amendment and the movement for an Equal Rights Amendment, beginning in 1923.
