Statement of Significance (as of designation - May 30, 1974):
From 1929, this house has served as headquarters of the National Woman's Party, founded by Alice Paul (1885-1977), the most significant figure in the final phase of the struggle for a Constitutional amendment granting women the right to vote. Paul revivified the movement, employing dramatic techniques--White House demonstrations, hunger strikes, and relentless political pressure--to achieve victory just prior to the 1920 election.

Currently, there are no threats to the landmark.

There has been no change since the last reporting period.
