Women in New York State secured the vote in 1917, and in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution was ratified, extending the vote to all women in the United States. National suffrage leaders came to Long Island and several Long Islanders made a mark on the national scene. Alva Vanderbilt Belmont, Harriot Stanton Blatch, and Rosalie Gardiner Jones are among the better-known local suffragists, but countless woman campaigned for suffrage. “General” Rosalie Jones won her fame when she led hikes from New York City to Albany and Washington, DC in 1912 and 1913. New York’s “I Voted” sticker in 2017 had a picture of Rosalie Jones and in 2021, the state will be erecting a statue of her in front of the Cold Spring Harbor Library, a few miles from her home in Nassau County.

The speaker is Natalie Naylor, past president of the Nassau County Historical Society, editor of its annual Journal, and a retired professor from Hofstra University.

Errata: The 19th amendment of the US Constitution required 3/4 (not 2/3 as mentioned in the webinar) of the states to ratify it.

A pdf copy of the meeting handout <https://www.nassaucountyhistoricalsociety.org/documents/Winning_Votes_&_Suffrage_Bibliography.pdf> is available here for you to view and/or print out for reference.
