6pm – 7:30pm Open House
7:30pm – 9:30pm Movie Screening
128 Hooten Road (street)

The Alice Paul Institute is hosting a celebration in honor of Women’s Equality Day! Join us at Paulsdale, the childhood home of American suffragist Alice Paul, for an evening celebrating Paul’s inclusion in the redesign of the $10 bill with four other renowned suffragists. Paul led the final fight for the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution which granted women the right to vote in 1920, a day that was designated as “Women’s Equality Day” by the U.S. Congress in 1971.

Join us for an open house, view the new Alice Paul: In Pursuit of Ordinary Equality exhibit, and make your own ice-cream sundae.  Stay for a suffrage movie starting at 7:30pm.

Admission is FREE!  Donations welcome.

Please call us at 856-231-1885 or email info@alicepaul.org. to reserve your seat for the movie.
