On February 14th, 1920, suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt founded the League of Women Voters. The League would go forward where the suffrage movement left off, thanks to the passage of the 19th amendment granting the right to vote to women.
Before that day, suffragists had used Valentine’s Day as an opportunity to spread their message. This 1915 valentine suggests that there will be no love on Valentine’s Day until women get the right to vote:
This 1916 valentine suggests that women love men who stand up for their right to vote:
And this one from 1918 suggests that if men really loved women, they’d give them suffrage.
Happy early Valentine’s/League of Women Voters’ Day!

It was the extraordinary efforts of Suffragist Carrie Chapman Catt because of which women were given an opportunity of giving votes. My friends play online casino and the name of the casino on this page gamblizard.com/casinos/grosvenor-casino-bonus is similar to it. Being a woman, I think we all must appreciate what Carrie Chapman did for us.

When I was in school, I always looked forward to Valentine's Day with great trepidation in order to exchange Valentine's cards with my classmates.

It's great that we live in a time of equality. It's hard to imagine that before, women did not have the right to vote. No one would dare restrict women's rights now. We can do everything) And play poker in online casinos, including. I'm using PayPal to secure my money. Details can be found in the source. Thanks for the interesting post. I have a different view of Valentine's Day. Now I'm going to celebrate League of Women Voters’ Day!
