Honor Inez Milholland on March 8, International Women’s Day…

The US suffrage martyr, Inez Milholland, has been championed by her family members and others to the point where her name is now recognizable to larger parts of the American public and around the world. Her family members, descendants and many friends have made sure memorabilia, primary documents, photographs of Inez, and more, have been saved and stored in university and related repositories.

The month of March is Women’s History Month in the US.

During the years leading up to the 2020 centennial observance, a database of suffrage activists has been assembled, conferences have been held, special interest groups formed, articles written about individuals and organizations, suffrage events, and more. Family members and descendants have been working behind the scenes to inspire observances and special events. Inez Milholland has been the recipient of this kind of attention.

And during 2021, the Kearns family will be the center of attention with the publication of An Unfinished Revolution from SUNY Press (State University of New York).

Inez Milholland is featured in the upcoming book by Marguerite Kearns.
