Background:  One hundred years ago, the female half of the population was not allowed to vote. It was not until August 18th, 1920, the 19th Amendment to the constitution was ratified.  In 2020, the League of Women Voters of Benton and Franklin Counties honor the hard work of the suffragettes of a century ago by focusing on the importance of young voter participation.
