Ratification of the 19th Amendment in 1920 for women's suffrage culminated more than 70 years of struggle. Suffragist Rosalie Gardiner Jones from the Cold Spring Harbor area delivered her maiden suffrage speech in Roslyn. She went on to gain national fame as General Jones, leading hikes from New York City to Albany and then to Washington, D.C. in 1912-1913. Learn about this long overlooked suffragist who was pictured on voting stickers last November from Natalie Naylor, retired Hofstra professor.
