Inez Milholland deserves our attention on August 26th, Women’s Equality Day, and this reminder should reach you in time to plan.
No, Women’s Equality Day isn’t a national holiday, but it should be. Give the day your total attention and remember Inez.
This effort is supported by SuffrageCentennials.com. This is a web site devoted to suffrage centennials and votes for women.
If you’d like more information about Inez, follow this blog (InezMilholland.wordpress.com) with reverence and attention. Thank the National Women’s History Project for devoting an entire year in 2016 to remember Inez on the 100th anniversary of her death.
Going on vacation during the next year? Visit Inez’s grave in Lewis, New York. There is a road marker at her grave site. It’s worth seeing. Many people make the pilgrimage. And in 2017 and 2018, women and men in the Adirondack region visited the Milholland grave and honored her.
Honor Inez on August 26th. Close your eyes and remember the dedication of tens of thousands of individuals across the nation responsible for our right to vote.
