Description
The League of Women Voters extensive collection consists of over fifty years of correspondence, minutes, reports, financial records, audio tapes and a documentary film. Included are League publications, printed materials and newspaper clippings depicting the development and achievements of the League throughout the 20th century.
Background
Following the triumphant campaign for California suffrage in 1911, many politically active women joined the California Civic League. Guided by a conscious design of drawing together on terms of equality representatives of as many social groups as possible for the specific purpose of study and service in the field of politics and civics, league members embarked on an aggressive reform program.
