Historical Note

The League of Women Voters was founded in 1920 by Carrie Chapman Catt in Chicago, Illinois, shortly before the ratification of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which provided women’s suffrage in America. The league had its origins in the National American Woman Suffrage Association. At this time, there was a national movement of women who promoted legislative reforms for improved living conditions and education of women and children. The purpose was to teach newly enfranchised women how to participate in politics.

The League of Women Voters of Pulaski County was organized shortly after the original body's formation in Chicago in the same year of 1920. After the adoption of the Nineteenth Amendment, the league worked to promote political responsibility. The League of Women Voters of Pulaski County actively worked on various issues in this vein, such as election procedures, public education, and a revised state constitution. The League of Women Voters of Pulaski County are still in operation today.
