Administrative History

The League of Women Voters is an American political organization that was founded in 1920 as a result of the Nineteenth Amendment to the US Constitution which granted women the right to vote. Though non-partisan, the organization seeks to influence policy through advocacy, and is represented by local chapters in all 50 states. The Michigan State Normal College chapter was organized by the Women's League, which represented female students at the College.
