Lunch & Learn with the League. "Winning Political Power for Women: Carrie Chapman Catt and the LWV," plus the League's 100th Anniversary Celebration!
This very special Lunch & Learn will celebrate the 100th Anniversary of winning political power for women, Carrie Chapman Catt, and the founding of the League of Women Voters.
Our presentation will be by Robert P. J. Cooney, Jr., author of “Winning the Vote: The Triumph of the American Woman Suffrage Movement,” marking the centennial of American women nationally winning the right to vote. This was a decades-long nonviolent civil rights movement that lies at the heart of our democracy. Learn about the drive for equal rights and how women won not only passage of the 19th Amendment but also political freedom. The final years of the women’s suffrage movement were the formative years of the League of Women Voters.
Led by Carrie Chapman Catt, suffragists across the country surged to victory in 1920 and turned their National American Woman Suffrage Association into the League of Women Voters. Enjoy a well- illustrated journey through the successful grassroots political campaigns of the suffrage movement and its evolution into the force we know today.
Robert P.J. Cooney has studied the historic drive to win the vote by American women for more than 25 years and is a recognized expert on this historic nonviolent movement.
