Ohio Woman Suffrage Association 1900 convention program
Description: This program was created for and distributed at the 15th annual convention of the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association. The convention was held in Athens, Ohio, on October 17 and 18, 1900. The program outlines the schedule of events for the convention and credits the state and local organizers of the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association. Events include group prayers, reports from executive officers and county presidents, music, elections of officers and delegates, and a group discussion. This program also issues an announcement that the event is free and open to guests. 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.
