What did the suffragists do when the 19th Amendment was finally passed? Did they build monuments, hand out medals, erect statues to celebrate the victory? No, they created the League of Women Voters to carry on the fight for democracy!
On February 14th, 1920, at the national convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, its president, Carrie Chapman Catt, called for the creation of the League of Women Voters. Her vision was to ensure women's full participation as political equals and as informed, independant voters, thus improving democracy.
