On May 15, 1869, the National Woman Suffrage Association (NWSA) was founded. The first president of the organization was Susan B. Anthony. This document, the NWSA Constitution, presented five articles the association would uphold. The major goal was to “secure STATE and NATIONAL protection for women citizens in the exercise of their right to vote.” The NWSA was dissolved in 1890 when it and the American Woman Suffrage Association become one, the National American Woman Suffrage Association.
