During the postwar period, the League helped lead the effort to establish the United Nations and to ensure U.S. Participation. The League was one of the first organizations in the country officially recognized by the United Nations as a non-governmental organization; it still maintains official observer status today.
The St. Louis League is one of the oldest in the nation and originally consisted of many chapters throughout the St. Louis area. In an effort to bring all of these diverse groups together, the county chapters merged into a singular League of Women Voters of St. Louis County. However the city and county chapters remained separate. In 1986 the The St. Louis City and St. Louis County League of Women Voters came together at the St. Louis Women's Club to form one united league, the League of Women Voters of St. Louis, thus marking a truly historic moment in the life of one of the oldest Leagues in the country. The name was changed to The League of Women Voters of Metro St. Louis in 2015.
