It took 72 years from the first Women’s Rights gathering in Seneca Falls, NY to the day the 19th Amendment was adopted on August 26, 1920. The Women’s Suffrage effort was one of the most intense and difficult campaigns in our history. Women and men worked day and night to convince our legislators that every citizen–regardless of gender–deserved the right to vote. One of the most important individuals in finally making it a reality was Carrie Chapman Catt, suffragist leader, secret ‘Winning Plan’ strategist, and founder of the League of Women Voters. Participants will learn more about Catt, a National Women’s Hall of Fame inductee and women’s rights dynamo, a successor of Susan B. Anthony, as head of the National American Woman Suffrage Association.
