Description: Annual report given by Rosa L. Segur, Chairman of the Executive Committee for the Toledo Woman Suffrage Association, at the American Woman Suffrage Association Convention in Topeka, Kansas, October 1886. The report includes accomplishments and activities of the group over the past year, as well as challenges they have faced.

Casement (1840-1928) was born in Painesville, Ohio, and graduated from Painesville Academy and Willoughby Female Seminary. Her father, Charles Casement, supported abolition and women's suffrage and encouraged Frances to be active in social causes. Frances Casement established the Painesville Equal Rights Association in 1883, and shortly after became involved in the Ohio Woman Suffrage Association, serving as its president from 1885 to 1888.
