The Alice Award

On Thursday, September 14th, 2017, we will celebrate               The Honorable Elaine L. Chao, U.S. Secretary of Transportation

Each year we pay tribute to a distinguished woman who has made an outstanding contribution in breaking barriers and setting new precedents for women. Named for Alice Paul – suffragist, human rights activist and founder of the National Woman’s Party – the Alice Award is presented to a trailblazer each year at the National Woman’s Party’s luncheon.

This year, the NWP will also honor Senator Tammy Baldwin for her outstanding leadership in support of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission Act, calling for the 2020 celebration of the Centennial of the 19th Amendment, a milestone of democracy, voting rights, and equal rights.
