Who are we?

The League of Women Vosters is a non-partisan, grass-roots network with members of both genders throughout the United States.  An outgrowth of the women's suffrage, the league first worked to encourage 20 million women to exercise their new rights.  Now the League works for and with all citizens to encourage active participation in government at local, state and national levels.

  • Join others in advocating positions
