• It will be 100 years this fall since women got the right to vote in New York State. While ground zero of the women’s suffrage movement in New York is considered to be Seneca Falls,  many Long Island women were at the forefront of the statewide suffrage movement, and local women’s voting rights groups are making sure their forebears are remembered this year, beginning with a re-enactment of a 1913 rally in East Hampton Aug. 24.
