I am very pleased to announce that this web site is now home to the Long Island Woman Suffrage Association. The Association has been formed to continue to celebrate the hard work of Long Island women that culminated with winning the vote, first in New York State in 1917 and then throughout the nation in 1920 with the passage of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution.
It is an exciting time for the Association. We are beginning plans for a State-wide celebration of New York’s suffrage centennial in 2017, and then later the national celebration in 2020. The Association has joined the New York Cultural Heritage Tourism Network to facilitate these celebrations by joining with like-minded groups and individuals. For more information log onto www.nychtn.com.
We will continue to post news here regarding the network and the celebrations, so stay tuned for an exciting ride!
