Local League of Women Voters founder writes book on LWV
Hartsville resident Sheila M. Haney, former president and founder of the Darlington County League of Women Voters (LWV), recently completed her book, “In Her Shoes: A History of the League of Women Voters of South Carolina, 1920-2020.”
The book’s publication comes as LWV organizations at local, state and national levels celebrate 100 years of women having the right to vote, as granted by the 19th Amendment. The book is available in both hard copy and electronic format on Amazon. com.
Haney has long been a passionate advocate for the LWV, a nonpartisan organization, whose membership is open to both women and men. Under her guidance, the Darlington League holds voter registration events, provides information on candidates through the League’s Vote 411 website, and equips members with effective strategies for communicating with elected officials.
In addition, the League embraces issues regarding the Equal Rights Amendment, public education, child welfare, women’s rights and environmental issues.
Though now retired as president of the Darlington League, Haney will continue to be an active participant in making our democracy work and encouraging us all to vote every in every election, whether large or small.
