Badge worn by Alice Stone Blackwell as a delegate to the League of Women Voters 3rd Annual Convention and Pan-American Conference of Women held in Baltimore, Maryland April 20-30, 1922.
In 1920 the National American Woman Suffrage Association became the League of Women Voters with Carrie Chapman Catt as its first president. It was formed to help educate newly enfranchised women.
Alice Stone Blackwell was the daughter of Lucy Stone and an avid women’s rights advocate in her own right. She assumed editorship of the Woman’s Journal, a leading women’s political journal from 1870 to 1931, when her father, co-founder of the periodical with her mother, passed away (Stone Blackwell's editorship lasted from 1909-1917).
