Transcript of SoJo Presentation

Eleanor Roosevelt Eleanor joins the Women's Division of the Democratic State (1922 ):

New York State had granted women the right to vote in 1917, three years before the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment made female suffrage the law of the land. This accomplishment was due in no small part to the tireless activism of female suffragists who traveled the state for years, lobbying legislators in Albany, organizing demonstrations, and raising funds for female causes
The Women's Division of the New York State Democratic Committee was formed as a means of channeling the votes of newly enfranchised women towards Democratic candidates, and by the mid-1920s it had become one of the focal points of female political power in New York State.
