100TH ANNIVERSARY - LEAGUE OF WOMEN VOTERS
August 18, 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the women's right to vote in the United States, with the ratification of the 19th Amendment. Beginning in the 1800s women lectured, wrote, marched, lobbied, petitioned and practiced civil disobedience for decades to achieve the right to vote. In February of 1920 the League of Women Voters was founded in order to assist and educated the new women voters. This brief history of the local League of Women Voters was created by the current President of the League of Women Voters of Eden Area, Penny Peck (aka Miss Penny).
