League of Women Voters of Cambridge.

Hide Profile

The Cambridge Political Equality Association was organized in February 1896 by women who believed "that the exercise of the suffrage on the part of the women citizens is not only just but will promote a better civic life, the true development of the home, and the welfare of the family...." Association records for the years 1896 to 1916 are in: the Schlesinger Library's Woman's Rights Collection (folders 1070-1081af, volumes 106-110); the Grace A. Johnson papers in the Woman's Rights Collection (Jo-161--Jo-164); and in the Maud Wood Park papers in the Woman's Rights Collection (Pa-155). In 1916 the CPEA was reorganized as the Third Middlesex Representative District Organization of the Massachusetts Woman Suffrage Association. In 1920 it became the League of Women Voters of Cambridge.
