New York State was key to the national movement for women’s suffrage. From Seneca Falls to New York City’s Lower East Side, from Buffalo to Brooklyn, from Canton to Cattaraugus, people in New York State were leaders in the woman suffrage movement from 1848 until 1917 when suffrage was legalized in New York State and on to 1920 when the federal government passed the 19th amendment.
This website pays tribute to those who worked diligently against nearly insurmountable odds to provide New York State women the right to vote.
