Rosalie Gardiner Jones

Rosalie Jones, a tireless Long Island suffragist, was famous for doing the unusual and unexpected. Rosalie used marches, parades and wagons to lure crowds and draw attention to the suffrage movement. Two notable marches took place in 1913 as supporters hiked, with Jones leading them, to Albany to deliver a petition to the new governor and to Washington, DC to participate in a protest parade before Woodrow Wilsonís inauguration.
