The League of Women Voters celebrates 95th anniversary!

Founded February 14, 1920

The League of Women Voters was formed when women won the right to vote in the United States because the new voters wanted to be informed voters. For 95 years, the LWV has been educating its members and all voters with unbiased election information.

Members of LWV Collin County celebrated LWV's anniversary with a performance of "We Hold These Truths," a readers theater production about the history of the suffrage movement 1848-1920. The play, written by LWV Collin County member Patty Jantho, was recently performed for the Daughters of the American Revolution, Preston Ridge Chapter in Frisco.
