Ohio Woman Suffrage Association 1903 convention minutes
Description: This booklet is a copy of the minutes from the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association's 1903 convention on October 15th and 16th. The minutes were edited by Elizabeth Hauser, Chairman of the Press Committee. These minutes are an official written record of the events of the convention and detail the resolutions adopted at the convention, the constitution of the organization, and members of committees. This copy of the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association's minutes gives a detailed look at the inner-workings of the organization and the ways in which they worked towards equal suffrage. 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.
