Happy Women's Equality Day!
The League of Women Voters - founded the same year - celebrates this historic milestone by promoting greater civic participation and healthy debate on the issues that matter most to our nation and our communities.
This Women's Equality Day, we take time to recognize not only the historic 19th Amendment, but the tremendous progress we've made over the last 90 years in expanding and protecting voting rights. Generation to generation, the work of League supporters like you has been a testament to the incredible legacy of the 19th Amendment.
And today, as we approach the November midterm elections and face new and even greater challenges as a nation, the League believes that the hands-on work of an engaged citizenry can and does lead to civic improvement at all levels of government.
Spread the word about the League's Women's Equality Day celebrations. Send a personalized League e-card to your friends and family reminding them of this important day and telling them about the League's important work.
Ninety-one years ago, as victory seemed imminent for the 19th Amendment, Carrie Chapman Catt proposed the founding of the League of Women Voters to "finish the fight." For 90 years, the League has kept that promise alive for each coming generation. Today, as a League supporter, you have the opportunity to continue to make a profound, direct and positive impact on the issues that matter most to our community and the generations to come.
