Our Rich History
100 years and counting
League of Women Voters has a 100-year history of striving to make democracy work for all citizens. Its roots are in the suffragist movement, but it quickly moved from the enfranchisement of women to take on the issues of the day – always in a non-partisan framework supported by volunteers.
Much has changed since 1919. LWV is inclusive of all gender identities, and non-citizens. The goals of supporting good government have remained the same, however. We invite you to explore League in its decade-by-decade work to promote civic engagement and strong communities.
