August may be considered the “quietest” month of the year in the Nation’s Capital, but the National Press Club’s Truman Lounge was abuzz on Aug. 11 with a special Pub Quiz trivia night featuring representatives from the National Woman’s Party at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument.

In a new effort to promote local museums and historic landmarks throughout the D.C. area, the Club featured representatives from the National Woman’s Party who hosted a round of insightful yet challenging questions on women’s rights and the suffrage movement. Guest representatives Jessica Konigsberg and Stephanie Kurasz, got the highly engaged and competitive teams of Club quizzers to huddle, quietly confer and scratch their heads in search of the right answer. The round was not easy, but the teams were engaged and interested to learn more about the museum and the suffrage movement. In addition to the summertime-tech round prizes, Jessica and Stephanie provided special gifts of stationery and hand fans which features depictions of the museum’s notable stained glass window.

Housed at the Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument on Capitol Hill, the National Woman’s Party celebrates women’s progress toward equality, and explores the evolving role of women and their contributions to society through education programs, tours, exhibits, research and publications.
