Scouts from the Girl Scout Council of the Nation's Capital (GSCNC) can work on patch requirements during your visit:
The Discover the Nation's Capital patch is earned by visiting a site from each of 5 categories throughout the city Belmont-Paul Women’s Equality National Monument (listed in the patch requirements as Sewall-Belmont House and Museum) is one of the options to explore the stories of women.
The Election Connection patch includes a number of activities related to political engagement. Under the "Discover" section, activity #2 involves research of groups that did not have the right to vote at some time during the nation's history. Completing the activity requires creating a voting history timeline that includes important dates related to women's suffrage.
Boy Scouts completing Citizenship in the Nation (an Eagle required merit badge) can satisfy part of Requirement #2 during your visit, since the museum is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Monument. You can also learn more about the process of amending the U.S. Constitution for Requirement #4 while exploring the exhibits or taking a tour.
