League of Women Voters of Texas

The League of Women Voters of Texas was established in 1919 as a local chapter of the National League of Women Voters (LWV). Carrie Catt Chapman proposed the National LWV to unite all the disparate organizations working for suffrage across the country. Following the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, the league continued to focus on policy issues related to women and education. Today the league remains involved in legislative solutions to challenges facing women and encourages men and women to be informed members of the electorate.
