2020 is the Year of Inez Milholland, the US Suffrage Martyr!

NEWS ALERT: The year 2020 is what we have all been waiting for. It’s the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution and celebrations are taking place all over the United States and abroad. In 2019, Mt. Discovery was renamed Mt. Inez in upstate New York. The town of Lewis and its residents observed road markers erected locally, funded by the Pomeroy Foundation, to mark Inez Milholland’s grave and related locations. The Milholland family lived in Lewis, New York. And it has been the site of many observances over the years to commemorate Inez Milholland.

There’s a terrific 15-minute film about Inez, perfect for 2020 observances and for the general public. And the reaming of Mt. Discovery in the Adirondack Mountain region of New York State is a milestone in the work conducted over the past decade to bring the stories about the US suffrage activists to the attention of the public. Keep in touch with the many observances during 2020 to bring the story of the history of the women’s rights movement to the attention of the broader public.
