The Woman Suffrage Party was organized by Carrie Chapman Catt in 1909 out of many small suffrage societies. It put the state legislature under intense pressure in 1915 forcing a referendum on votes for women in New York State. In 1917, a second vote was forced by more campaigning, helping women gain the vote in New York state.
