Ohio Woman Suffrage Association 1914 yearbook
Description: This "Year Book" is a year-end report following the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association's 1914 convention on December 3 and 4, 1914. This program not only outlines a brief schedule of events for the convention, but is a report of the year's reports and resolutions, the organization's plans for 1915, figures on county votes for and against women's suffrage, the organization's financial report, the organization's constitution, and lists of members. The Ohio Woman Suffrage Association's year book gives an understanding of what the organization accomplished in 1914 and what the organization hoped to accomplish for women's suffrage in 1915. This item is part of 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.
