Happy Birthday, League of Women Voters

Happy Birthday League of Women Voters

On February 14, the League of Women Voters celebrates its 104th birthday. The League was officially founded in Chicago in 1920, just six months before the 19th amendment was ratified and women won the vote. Formed by the suffragists of the National American Woman Suffrage Association, the League began as a “mighty political experiment” designed to help 20 million women carry out their new voting responsibilities.

The Naperville League celebrates with the National League and remains committed to continuing its mission of educating voters and defending democracy. Learn more about the League of Women Voters’ history.
