Equal Suffrage League of Virginia records, 1908-1938.

The Equal Suffrage League of Virginia was organized in 1909 in Richmond, Virginia. Its primary purpose was to publicize and propagandize women's issues in the state, with the goal to win the political vote. Virginia was one of the six states which did not ratify the amendment. The final board meeting of the previous Equal Suffrage League was on November 8, 1920, and it became the League of Women Voters on November 10, 1920.
