Alice Award for Hillary

This article was forwarded to me by Nate Levin.

Democratic Examiner:

I was able to attend an awards ceremony at one of DC's historic landmarks, the Sewall-Belmont House, home of Alice Paul, who formed the National Women's party during the fight for women's suffrage. Each year, they pay 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 was presented to Secretary Hillary Rodham Clinton for putting "eighteen million cracks" in the glass ceiling, and for her work in preserving our nation's historic treasures (one of which is the Sewall-Belmont House!).
