Correcting the record on Carrie Chapman Catt

I am writing in response to the article by Vanessa Miller ('First Up for renaming debate at Iowa State: Catt Hall,” March 15). Ms. Miller quotes from two requests to rename Catt Hall that express common misperceptions that the 19th Amendment enfranchised only white women and that Catt supported this goal.

Community Briefs: Neumann presents ‘Carrie Chapman Catt: The League of Women Voters’

ASTON—The Cultural Arts Forum at Neumann University presents Pat Jordan in "Carrie Chapman Catt." The League of Women Voters streamed live on February 11 at 1:30 p.m. It took 72 years from the first women's rights gathering in Seneca Falls, NY, to the US's adaption of the 19th Amendment on August 26, 1920. Women and men worked day and night to convince legislators that every citizen--regardless of gender--deserved the right to vote. One of the essential individuals in finally making it a reality was Carrie Chapman Catt, suffragist leader, secret "Winning Plan" strategist, and founder of the League of Women Voters.
