[page two of spread:] [top of page header:] National American Woman Suffrage Association 7 Call to Convention Fiftieth Annual Convention and Double Anniersary 1869-1919 The National American Woman Suffrage Association calls its State Auxiliaries through their elected delegates to meet in annual Convention at St. Louis, Hotel Statler, March 24 to March 29, 1919, inclusive. In 1869, Wyoming led all the world by the grant of full suffrage to its women. The Convention will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of this event. In 1869, the National and the American Woman Suffrage Associations were orgainized-to be combined twenty years later into the National American Woman Suffrage Association. The Convention will celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the founding of the organization which without a pause has carried forward, during half a century, the effort to secure the enfranchise-ment of women. As a fitting memorial to a half century of progress, the National American Woman Suffrage Association invites the women voters of the fifteen full suffrage States to attend this Anniversary Convention, and there to join their forces into a League of Women Voters, one of whose objects shall be to speed the suffrage campaign in our own and other countries. The Convention will express its pleasure with suitable ceremonials that since last we met the women of England, Scotland, Ireland, Wales, Canada and Germany have received the vote; but it will make searching inquiry into the mysterious causes which deny patriotic, qualified women of our Republic "a voice in their own government," while those of monarchies and erstwhile monarchies are honored with political equality. Suffrage Delegates, Women Voters, there is need of more serious counsel than in any previous year. It is not you but the Nation that has been dishonored by the failure of the 65th Congress to pass the Federal Suffrage Amendment. Let us inquire together. Let us act together.
