Ohio Woman Suffrage Association 1919-1920 yearbook
Description: This "Year Book" was published after the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association's 1920 convention which was held from May 4, 1920, to May 7, 1920. This year-end report is noted to only include the essential facts of the 1920 convention and the organization's financial statements in an effort to save money on printing costs. The program includes the resolutions adopted by the organization at the convention, the financial reports of each county's expenses related to the campaign for women's suffrage, and the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association's constitution. Lastly, the program includes a directory of the Ohio League of Women Voters. 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.
