Today, February 18 GCSG celebrates the day the National American Woman Suffrage Association (NAWSA) was formed in 1890

PRAIRIEVILLE, Louisiana, February 18, 2018 – GCSG, an advisory, audit and due diligence firm focused on helping companies manage compliance and risk in their business and with their third parties, celebrates the great past achievements of the NAWSA.

The NAWSA was formed to work for women's suffrage in the United States.  It was created "in 1890 by the merger of the two major rival women's rights organization - the National Woman Suffrage Association and the American Woman Suffrage Association."(1)

The primary focus of the organization was winning the right to vote for women.  It's membership grew from about seven thousand to two million and at its height was the largest voluntary organization in the nation. 

The NAWSA played an important role in the passing of the Nineteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which passed in 1920, guaranteeing women the right to vote.

The NAWSA later became the League of Women Voters (2), still active today. 

"I have given my life and all I am to it, and now I want my last act to be to give it all I have, to the last cent." - Susan B. Anthony
