Celebrating the Centennial of the 19th Amendment – Women Vote

The League of Women Voters of the United States (LWVUS) grew out of the long struggle to achieve the vote for women. The 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which granted women in the United States the right to vote, was ratified on August 18, 1920, ending almost a century of protest nationally.  In response to the 19th Amendment, members of the National American Women’s Suffrage Association formed a new organization: a national League of Women Voters. Jane Brooks, Wichita, president of the Kansas Equal Suffrage Association, was the first permanent national LWV chair. She returned from the national suffrage convention to start the first local League in the nation in Wichita. See plans for our year long celebration.
