Founded in 1920 by Carrie Chapman Catt during the National American Women Suffrage Association convention, the league was designed to help the 20 million American women who became eligible to vote with the passing of the 19th amendment. A grassroots, activist organization who believes that the people have a critical role in the running of the government, they have remained nonpartisan and do not support or oppose candidates nor political parties to avoid being bogged down in party politics. Their main mission is to encourage informed and active participation in government, work to increase understanding of major public policy issues and influence policy through education and advocacy.

There are over 90,000 members located in every state, membership is open to anyone who share's the league's purpose.
