Ohio Woman Suffrage Association 1904 convention program
Description: This program was distributed at the 19th annual convention of the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association which was held October 11 and 12, 1904, in London, Ohio, at the Universalist Church. The program outlines the schedule of events for the convention as well as the names and hometowns of convention presenters. Events on the agenda included group prayers, piano solos, reports from executive officers and committees, organization elections, and presentations from speakers. This item comes from the League of Women Voters of Ohio Collection. The League of Women Voters was first formed at the national level in early 1920 by Carrie Chapman Catt, President of the National Woman Suffrage Association. Soon, additional leagues began to form at the state and local level, with the League of Women Voters of Ohio being organized in May 1920 in Columbus. The League was first formed to empower women to use their newfound right to vote, and today its primary purpose remains citizen education. To this goal, it supports voter registration efforts, provides information on candidates and issues, sponsors debates and offers publications on public policy and voter engagement topics.
