Ohio Woman Suffrage Association Broadside
Description: This broadside announces the fifth annual Ohio Woman Suffrage Association convention, which was held in Akron in 1889. It lists the resolutions the convention will discuss and provides the organization's constitution and by-laws on the back. It is one page and measures 8.5" x 12" (21.59 x 30.48 cm). The Ohio Woman Suffrage Association (OWSA) was established in 1869. The organization worked closely with local and national suffrage, or the right to vote, groups including the National Association for Woman Suffrage. OWSA disbanded with the passage of the 19th Amendment granting women the right to vote in 1920. Many of its members joined the League of Women Voters, which was established at that time.
