2020 Marks a Century of the League of Women Voters and the League of Women Voters of Washington Working to Create a More Perfect Democracy

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. As we reach our 100th, the League is setting the stage for vibrant growth, with a new generation of leaders passionate about active participation in government.

Join our celebration.
