Let’s keep the attention on the early women’s rights movement alive and active after 2020. We’ve been promoting the 100th anniversary of the ratification of the 19th Amendment this year, 2020, for years. This blog on Inez Milholland was launched in 2016, the 100th anniversary of the death of Inez, our suffrage martyr. We are determined to keep the memory of Inez alive during 2020 and thereafter.
March is Women’s History Month when organizations are looking for special programs, and Inez Milholland is a perfect candidate. In addition to the many artists, writers, historians, and others featuring her, there’s a 15 minute film produced by Wild West Women, and much more.
Start with checking out the Women’s History Alliance, formerly the National Women’s History Project, that did the initial lobbying and organization for March as Women’s History Month. The organization publishes and distributes a monthly email with lists of birthdays of activists and important historic figures. There’s a shop with books and fantastic memorabilia, perfect for gifts, school programs, and organizational fundraisers and events.
