Established in 1920 after winning the right to vote for women, the League of Women Voters today is one of the nation's most respected and most effective grassroots community-based organizations.


The League of Women Voters has evolved from a mighty political experiment, designed to help 20 million newly enfranchised women vote in 1920, to what it is today: a unique, nonpartisan organization that is a recognized force in molding political leaders, shaping public policy, and promoting informed citizen participation at all levels of government.
