*Since Carrie Chapman Catt in 1920 founded the League of Women Voters, a number of men have always been a part of that history by supporting their wives, sisters and friends in the Women’s Suffrage Movement in seeking womens’ right to vote.During that year, the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution would include giving the right to vote to women.It is Ms. Catt who saw the need to inform and educate some 20 million women at the time, on how to vote in the Democratic process and to have the means to advocate non-partisan issues of policy. SO, MEN are members too…!
