During March, Women’s History Month, the League of Women Voters of the Union Area is paying tribute to the achievements of women past and present in the communities where our members live—Union, Cranford, Linden and surrounding towns.
We are proud to take note of contributions by League members and other women in our towns, throughout Union County and everywhere in the nation. Members of the League work the year around to register voters, provide non-partisan voting information and educate citizens about important issues of the day.
This year, the Union Area League is celebrating Women’s History Month by cosponsoring a free program on “The Suffrage Movement: How Women Won the Vote” with the Union Public Library at the library at 7 p.m. March 18. Historian Charles McSorley will be the speaker.
We hope residents of our communities will join us at this program to learn about women’s long struggle for the ballot and to pay tribute to what has been accomplished over the years.
