The year 2020 marks the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment giving women voting rights.  The long, 70 plus year road to obtain that right lasted several generations and required the efforts of many, many courageous and persistent women and more than a few men.

The Missouri League of Women Voters was formed in 1919 in order to educate newly enfranchised women about voting and to get them registered to vote.  A century later, LWV still has the same mission: voter registration, education, and participation.  Come and enjoy a walk through the storied history of this journey and learn about our shared journey.  It is a triumphant story of persistent people changing the world for the better, and who doesn’t want to hear that?  Let’s celebrate together.
