This is the opening event for an exhibit recalling the 100-year history of the League of Women Voters. It describes the women who marched and demonstrated for 72 years in the fight for the right to vote until the 19th amendment to the US Constitution was ratified in 1920.
2020 will mark the 100th anniversary of the passage of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution giving women the right to vote. It is also the centennial of the founding of the League of Women Voters. In recognition of these events, the League of Women Voters of Lane County will be celebrating with events throughout 2020. To kick things off, LWVLC and WordCrafters are co-sponsoring an essay contest with cash prizes for high school students in Lane County on the topic of Women and the Vote.
For information on the essay contest as well as the other 100th anniversary events planned, click ESSAY.
