My Mom: A1, again...

My mom was featured (again!) on the front page of her hometown paper...this time, about her years of involvement with the state and national chapters of the League of Women Voters.

When American women finally received the right to vote in 1920, an organization arose to make sure that women’s suffrage was conducted in an educated and thoughtful way. The League of Women Voters was created as a nonpartisan organization aimed at examining the issues and the candidates before voters.

“The overall philosophy was, ‘We worked hard to earn the vote, let’s use it properly and be knowledgeable about the issues,’” said Corvallis League of Women Voters member and former chapter and state president Paula Krane.
