To honor this Centennial year of women getting the vote, the Falmouth League of Women Voters has collaborated with The Enterprise to provide Snippets of the Womens' Suffrage Movement in each issue.  In the August 21, 2020 issue, Olivann Hobbie wrote the article "Women Win the Suffrage Struggle".


The Sunday August 17th Cape Cod Times has a front page above the fold story - "Falmouth Women Gave Voice to Suffrage Movement".  Joan Boyer, LWVF Steering Committee chair is quoted in the article. 


 The article "Recipes for Revolution: Women's Suffrage Cookbooks Weaponized Food in the Fight for the Vote" in The Toledo Blade is fascinating.  A  member of the League of Women Voters of Toledo-Lucas County  is quoted and there is a whole history of women suffragists recipes and cookbooks.  The first cookbook  "Woman's Suffrage Cookbook" was published in Boston in 1886 to raise awareness of the movement.  Does anyone own a copy?
