The LWVSC Centennial Committee is planning our commemoration of the 100th anniversaries of women obtaining the vote in the United States (1919) and the founding of the League of Women Voters (1920).

When the Centennial Committee began reading books about women’s suffrage, little did we know that a local suffragist from Edmonds had a major role in the movement. Missouri Hanna was not only instrumental in helping Washington women get the vote in 1910, she was quite a daring pioneer. Why not share her life with the public?
An historical interpretive panel will be erected in the late fall of 2019. Other fun activities will follow throughout the Centennial year.
A short biography of Missouri Hanna's life and accomplishments will be cast on the panel. Here is the longer version of her amazing contributions.
For this and other projects, we have received grants from the Snohomish County Historic Preservation Commission and from the Votes for Women Centennial, Washington State Historical Society, and Washington State Women's Commission.
