National American Woman Suffrage Association

National American Woman Suffrage Association The National Woman Suffrage Association and American Woman Suffrage Association merged in 1890 at New York to form this group under president Elizabeth Cady Stanton and vice-president Susan B. Anthony. It was later headed by Carrie Chapman Catt and Anna Howard Shaw. It had chapters in every state and worked for women’s suffrage primarily through state laws until 1916, when it joined the National Woman’s party’s campaign for a constitutional amendment. It was the largest lobbying group to press for the Nineteenth Amendment, and disbanded in 1920.
