Topic: The History of Women's Suffrage in the U.S. and the Birth of the League
2020 marks the 100th anniversary of women winning the right to vote in the United States and the 100th anniversary of the founding of the League of Women Voters. Women won the vote in a hard-fought battle that was waged over decades.
Join us as we celebrate that momentous event that almost wasn’t. Learn about the strong-willed women who led the national movement and their betrayals. Hear the extraordinary California story. Learn about the League’s beginnings.
Note that this is a SECOND Wednesday, not our normal third Wednesday.
