Please join Robert P. J. Conney, Jr., author of "Winning the Vote: The Triumph of the American Woman Suffrage Movement," as he discusses the final years of the women's suffrage movement and the formation of the League of Women Voters. Led by Carrie Chapman Catt, suffragists across the county 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. Mr. Cooney has studied American women's drive for equal rights for more than 25 years and has become a recognized expert on this historic nonviolent movement. He is also on the National Women's History Alliance board directors.
