League of Women Voters of Ohio
Description: Portrait of Stella Hall Green of Cleveland, Ohio. Hall was included on the "Ohio State Honor Roll" from the League of Women Voters of Ohio, ca. 1930, which listed prominent Ohio women involved in the suffrage movement. Her brief biography from the Honor Roll reads: "Stella Hall Green (Mrs. Frederick) was born in Aurora, Illinois. She later moved to Columbus where she became connected with Dr. Washington Gladden's Church, and was active in philanthropic work. She moved to Cleveland in 1888. A member of the National American Woman's Suffrage Association and the National League of Women Voters, she was a tireless and devoted worker for the suffrage movement. In Cleveland campaigns she was responsible for all of the night street meetings. She trained and organized a corps of speaker who responded on call to this difficult and unpleasant sort of speaking." This photograph 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.
