This year the League of Women Voters Pensacola Bay Area is celebrating its centennial with a Birthday Party.

These women, known as suffragists, had worked tirelessly for more than seventy years to achieve this goal. This social occasion will feature displays of both historical and current activities of our organization, founded as women earned the right to vote in the United States.
