Carrie Chapman Catt girlhood home listed as part of National Votes for Women Trail

CHARLES CITY, Iowa - She was a key figure in securing women's right to vote. Decades later, her legacy has been felt across the country and around the world. Carrie Chapman Catt, who grew up near Charles City, dedicated her life to women's suffrage, and was instrumental in campaigning for the 19th Amendment to the United States Constitution, which ensured the right for women to vote. She also founded the League of Women Voters and the then-International Woman Suffrage Alliance (now the International Alliance of Women). Now, her childhood home has been listed on the National Votes for Women Trail, which commemorates the people, places and events of the suffrage struggle.
