A Century of Civic Engagement

Now Online

The Minnesota Legislature finally voted YES on September 8, 1919 to ratify the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution, granting women the right to vote and ending the 72-year struggle for woman suffrage.

But as distinguished Minnesota suffragist Clara Ueland said that day, “Today is the commencement rather than the end of our work.” The League of Women Voters Minnesota was born, with Ms. Ueland as its first President, to help carry out the new work of empowering voters and defending democracy, with women now at the table – and in the voting booth. One hundred years later, LWV Minnesota continues to thrive as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization promoting good government and civic engagement throughout Minnesota.

Come visit this vibrant exhibit that features Minnesota’s suffrage story, highlighting the women who made it happen – and who continue to lead through the League of Women Voters to make democracy work for all.
