Take a trip or conduct a phone interview with a member of the League of Women Voters. The League of Women Voters was created in 1920 to help organize women voters and encourage their active participation in civic life. Part of an OurStory module entitled Winning the Vote for Women, this activity includes recommendations for learning about and contacting a local chapter of the League of Women Voters, along with suggested discussion questions for either a trip to a meeting or a phone interview with a local member of the League. OurStory is designed to help children and adults enjoy exploring history together through the use of children's literature, everyday objects, and hands-on activities.
