Making Democracy Work


Centennial Tea

The League hosted a lovely tea on March 24 at the St. Louis Woman's Club.
League member Rebecca Now gave a presentation as Elizabeth Cady Stanton (1815-1902) who submitted the Declaration of Sentiments at the first women's rights convention in Seneca Falls in 1848.

There was a special performance by CHARIS, the St. Louis women's chorus.

The tea honored suffrage leader Carrie Chapman Catt. It was on March 24, 1919, at the 50th Anniversary Jubilee Convention of the National American Woman Suffrage Association in St. Louis, that she suggested to fellow suffragists, "Let us then raise up a league of women voters."
