Administrative History

Under the leadership of Alice Paul the National Woman's Party (NWP) emerged in 1916 from the formal union of the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage and the Woman's Party. From 1916 to 1920 the NWP worked on the federal level to secure for women the right to vote. After the ratification of the 19th Amendment, the organization began a decades- long campaign to win passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. In addition, the NWP has involved itself in international campaigns for women's rights. In 1997 the NWP ceased to be a lobbying organization and since then has devoted itself primarily to education. During the 1930s and 1940s Alma Lutz (Vassar 1912) was active in the NWP and author of a some of the pamphlets included in this collection.
