LOOKING TO THE FUTURE...LEAGUE TURNS 100 YEARS OLD
The League of Women Voters is a citizens’ organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact their lives.
The League of Women Voters operates at national, state and local levels through more than 700 state and local Leagues, in all 50 states as well as in DC, the Virgin Islands and Hong Kong.
The League of Women Voters was founded by Carrie Chapman Catt in 1920, just six months before the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was ratified, giving all American women the right to vote after a 72-year fight for women’s suffrage.
From the beginning, the League has been an activist, grassroots organization whose leaders believed that citizens should play a critical role in advocacy.
