The Vermont Woman's Suffrage Association was organized in 1883 and held its first annual meeting in January 1885 in Barton Landing. The membership was made up of both men and women and was closely allied with the American Woman's Suffrage Association and Lucy Stone. In 1907 the Vermont Woman's Suffrage Association changed its name to the Vermont Equal Suffrage Association. When it became clear in 1920 that women had the right to vote the Vermont Equal Suffrage Association became the Vermont League of Women Voters, affiliated with the National League of Women Voters.
