Celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Founding of the League of Women Voters in 2020!

LWV 100 Years Strong 1920-2020

The LWVCT Centennial Committee is working to make our anniversary year truly memorable with a Gala Dinner in February and Suffrage Banners to highlight women gaining the right to vote. 

Gala Dinner: The year 2020 will be a busy one as we celebrate the 100th anniversary of both the founding of the League and women winning the right to vote. Mark your calendars now and plan to attend the LWVCT Gala Dinner to be held at the Italian Center in Stamford on February 22, 2020. It will be a special celebration of the centennial. BUT, to make it a success we need League members to volunteer to work on one of the committees, i.e., decorations, program book ads, publicity, and invitations. So, please email Kay Maxwell at kayjmax@aol.com if you are interested in serving on or chairing a committee!

Suffrage Banners: LWVCT is cosponsoring—with the CT Women’s Hall of Fame, the CT Historical Society and other women’s organizations—the creation of 6 new suffrage banners. They will focus on Women of Color and their experience in winning the vote, anti-suffragists, and suffragists from CT, such as Alice Paul and Katherine Hepburn, and will be displayed at our Gala Dinner.
