Ohio Woman Suffrage Association 1907 convention program
Description: The Ohio Woman Suffrage Association created this program for their 22nd annual convention, which was held October 10 and 11, 1907, in Youngstown, Ohio. The program outlines the schedule of events for the convention. Some of these events included reports from officers and committees, music solos, addresses from the president and other speakers, and discussions. The last page of the program also records the names of executive officers of the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association and includes several notes about the convention. 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.
