Looking for a unique history?

This fascinating book is available on Amazon for $15 plus tax! Just type “League of Women Voters of Colorado” into the search field.

LWV 100th Birthday

SUFFRAGIST BOOKLET PUBLISHED

    "Seven Women Who Never Gave Up" a 30 page booklet about seven leaders of the American suffragist movement is now available. While isolated at home during the pandemic, a team of members of the Montezuma County League of Women voters have written, edited, proofread, and published this project. Half of the copies will be donated to the high schools of the county to be a resource for civics and history teachers.

     A copy can be purchased for a donation of $5.00 to the League of Women Voters of Montezuma County. The booklets are a trove of little known facts. One entry is about Colorado’s own newspaper owner and suffragist, Caroline Nichols Churchill.

     The booklets would be interesting holiday gifts for family, friends, and young people. Send requests to Connie Fox at 6cpfox@gmail.com. She will arrange to deliver the booklets to you.
