An event later this week will honor and reflect on a century of progress since women earned the right to vote in Illinois.
“One hundred years of an invaluable right — the right to vote. Register, then check-out League’s VOTE411.org, and be informed.”
“I am excited that the League is part of launching the 2020 Women's Vote Centennial Initiative to remind us of the decades of hard work and perseverance it took to win voting rights for women,” said President MacNamara.
"The League of Women Voters of the Huntington Area held a movie showing Monday afternoon at the West Library of "Iron Jawed Angels," a film about early 20th century suffragists' struggles to gain the right to vote."
