Join the League of Women Voters of Texas as we celebrate our 100th year anniversary at the St Anthony Hotel, in San Antonio. The very same hotel where the first meeting of the League of Women Voters took place!

The power of women to create a more perfect democracy is as undeniable now as it was 100 years ago.

Patricia (Trish) Cunningham Nicholson, the great grandniece of Minnie Fisher Cunningham will speak on the "Power of Women" with regard to "Minni Fish's" efforts to help Texas women win the right to vote, which directly lead to the formation of the League of Women Voters. In 1928, "Mini Fish" was the first Texas woman to run for the United States Senate.

Dr. Jessica Brannon-Wranosky, Ph.D. She is a well-recognized suffrage historian in Texas and in the U.S. will continue with "the Power of Women" in Texas history and their heroic ongoing struggle to achieve full voting rights for all women in Texas.

She received her Ph.D. in history from the University of North Texas. Dr. Brannon-Wranosky specializes in women, gender and sexuality history and digital humanities applications. She is currently serving as the Project Director for the Handbook of Texas Women and is developing the Texas Women Suffrage ebook. Both are public education projects of the Texas State Historical Association.
