Long Island and the Woman Suffrage Movement

Home to the Long Island Woman Suffrage Association

Welcome to my page devoted to the study and celebration of the woman suffrage movement on Long Island and throughout the nation.

This page is now also the home of the Long Island Woman Suffrage Association, formed to coordinate celebration of the centennial of New York women winning the vote in 2017, as well as the national celebration of the centennial of the passage of the 19th Amendment in 2020.  We hope you will join us in these celebrations, so keep checking back on the page to see our progress and plans.

In the meantime, please browse the site, check on the latest posts, feel free to make suggestions and comments, and do scroll through the list Helpful Links that offers a treasure trove of information about the history of the movement, and what’s going on in celebration of its history today.
