"Rallying for Tea" Afternoon tea was served in a grand style. The affairs were supervised by women and viewed as an expression of their refinement and social status. Mrs. Alva Vanderbilt Belmont had a special Chinese tea house built on the grounds of Marble House in 1913. The building eventually served as a setting where the elegant act of serving tea was used as a vehicle for women's suffrage meeting on July 8th, 1914.The tea party was actually a militant rally for women's rights. Mrs. Belmont also served as the President of the Political Equality Association of New York, a position she used to further the cause of "Votes for Women". This served as the motto of the suffrage movement and it appeared on a special service of Minton china she ordered in 1909, which is currently displayed at Marble House. \
