Historian Robert P.J. Cooney, Jr. delivered remarks to the League's National Convention in Atlanta, GA in 2010. Cooney's remarks were based on his book, "Winning the Vote: the The Triumph of the American Woman Suffrage Movement," and highlighted the accomplishments of League founder, Carrie Chapman Catt.  “Winning the Vote” shows how women have long been active participants in U.S. history, and how many became politically powerful before winning the vote.
