Take a look at the back postings about Inez Milholland, our U.S. suffrage martyr. We launched this centennial blog during 2016. That’s when we observed the 100 years since her death. See InezMilhollandCentennial.com
The National Women’s History Project observance of the 100 years since Milholland’s death resulted in thousands of Americans hearing about her for the first time. Also—there’s a 15-minute excellent film available from InezMilholland.org from filmmaker Martha Wheelock. It’s an excellent choice for personal, as well as school and organizational use. Marguerite Kearns and Robert P.J. Cooney Jr. coordinated the 2016 observance of Milholland’s death.
Inez has been nominated for the National Women’s Hall of Fame for 2019. We have our fingers crossed for the announcement in 2019. We were surprised that Inez was not yet a national fixture and vowed to change this.
