Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton to Receive 2009 Alice Award

The Making HerStory team could not have been more elated to have been invited to extend the 2009 Exhibition, "Making HerStory 4: Feminine Reflection," at the Sewall-Belmont House through June 2009. But, to make it even sweeter, the work will be present during the 2009 Alice Award luncheon. Why is this exciting? This year's recipient is none other than Secretary of State, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Secretary Clinton will receive the 2009 Alice Award at SBH's annual luncheon on Monday, June 8, 2009.

Each year, SBH pays tribute to a distinguished woman who has made an outstanding contribution in breaking barriers and setting new precedents for women. This year’s prestigious Alice Award, named after Alice Paul, founder of the National Woman’s Party, will be presented to Secretary Clinton for putting “eighteen million cracks” in the glass ceiling. Under her leadership as First Lady, the Sewall-Belmont House, along with the Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and the Star Spangled Banner, was one of the four nationally significant preservation projects named by Congress in the legislation that established the “Save America’s Treasures” program.

The Sewall-Belmont House and Museum celebrates women’s progress toward equality and their continuing contributions to our society. Through educational programs, tours, exhibits, research and publications, the museum is committed to preserving the legacy of the historical National Woman’s Party – the campaign for women’s equal rights – and bringing the history to life for future generations.

Making HerStory is proud to be a part of the spirit of celebrating womanhood and all the strides that women are making in all aspects of life. HerStory is committed to celebrating women in all genres of art and works to provide encouragement for women to find their creative niche.

  1. I read about this fantastic exhibition on Jennifer Judelsohn's art blog so I hopped on over here to see the artwork and read about the many talented women who are showing. The posts below showcase their work, but I'd love to see this show in person.

    Honoring Secretary Hillary Rodman Clinton for the Alice Award is a superb reason for extending this making herstory show!
