Achieving Votes for Women on Long Island and the Nation

Women in New York secured the vote in 1917, first voted in 1918, and in 1920, the 19th Amendment was ratified extending the vote to all women. National leaders came to Long Island and several Long Islanders made a mark on the national scene. Alva Belmont, Harriot Stanton Blatch, and Rosalie Jones are among the better-known local names, but countless woman campaigned for suffrage.

Natalie Naylor taught Long Island history and other courses in American social history at Hofstra where she was also Director of Hofstra’s Long Island Studies Institute from its founding in 1985 until she retired in 2000 and edited several of its books. Dr. Naylor was President of the Nassau County Historical Society for 12 years, the author of Women in Long Island’s Past (2012) and many articles on local history.
