Gabrielle Stewart Mulliner
(1872–1919) A lawyer, Gabrielle advocated for women in the court system and appealed to the Governor to set up separate courts for women and women's issues. Gabrielle was noted as a leader in women's affairs and was referred to as a prominent suffragist. She was reported to have called anti-suffragists "traitors to the home" and "cowards."
Gabrielle authored a pamphlet entitled "New York Laws of Interest to Women", read at the November 11, 1908 convention of the New York State Federation of Women's Clubs and published by the Federation in 1908. She was active in the Woman Suffrage Party from its inception in 1909. She served as chairman of the Legislative Committee of the New York State Federation of Women's Clubs, during which time she was successful in establishing a Women's Court, a separate court for the trial of women under arrest.
Gabrielle was a member of the New York County Lawyer's Association, Equal Franchise Society, Women's Republican Club, National Civic Association, National Society of Patriotic Women, and Daughters of the American Revolution. *courtesy alexanderstreet.com
