League of Women Voters of Massachusetts

Archived web site of www.lwvma.org/

 

The League of Women Voters was founded in 1920 during the National American Suffrage Association convention, just months before the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution gave women the right to vote. Many founding delegates were from Massachusetts, and participated in local suffrage organizations. These suffrage groups promptly reformed as League chapters. Originally incorporated in 1893, the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association dissolved and regrouped in May 1920 as the Massachusetts League of Women Voters, to co-operate in carrying out the program of the national League. In 1948, the group changed its name to the League of Women Voters of Massachusetts (LWVM).
