Why feature these two women? Both Mrs. Roosevelt and Millie Benson were born before women could vote. They both triumphed in personal and professional struggles. Both were journalists. Today both are known in connection with enjoyable mystery novels. Mrs. Roosevelt stars in a series created by her son, and Millie Benson wrote the first Nancy Drew mysteries.
Why the mystery theme? How to be an effective citizen is often a mystery and a challenge for anyone. The League of Women Voters is a citizens’ organization that has fought since 1920 to improve our government and engage all citizens in the decisions that impact their lives. The League operates at national, state and local levels through more than 800 state and local Leagues. Here in Toledo – Lucas County the League has been working hard for 92 years to protect citizens’ rights. Recently the League went to court to protect safe elections.
The League of Women Voters, a nonpartisan political organization, encourages informed and active participation in government, works to increase understanding of major public policy issues, and influences public policy through education and advocacy.
