Meet Carrie Chapman Catt
April 30, 2020 7:00 p.m.
800 McKinley Monument Dr NW, Canton OH 44708
Carrie Chapman Catt campaigned tirelessly for women’s suffrage. Her will and dedication remained strong, even in times of defeat. In 1892, Susan B. Anthony took over leadership of NAWSA. Catt worked alongside Anthony, organizing campaigns across the nation and influencing the direction NAWSA took. When Anthony retired as president of NAWSA, she chose Catt as her successor. While she was president, the 19th amendment passed and American women earned the right to vote. Catt’s work did not end there, however. She viewed this as a great beginning for women. NAWSA dissolved and from it, Catt helped form the League of Women Voters. Their goal was to educate women on issues in a bi-partisan forum. This first-person program is presented by Dr. Deleasa Randall-Griffiths, Associate Professor in the Department of Communication Studies at Ashland University. This program is sponsored by the League of Women Voters. Cost is $10 per person.
