One of our sister sites honors Inez Milholland, our national suffrage martyr, an information resource launched during 2016 when Marguerite Kearns worked with Bob Cooney and the National Women’s History Project to commemorate the 100 years since Inez Milholland’s death. Are you following what’s happening? Our goal is to make sure Inez gets the proper recognition she deserves in 2020, the 100th anniversary of women voting in the United States.
By following InezMilholland.wordpress.com you’ll see the awareness and appreciate increasing over time.
There’s a free 15-minute film by Martha Wheelock and Wild West Women about Inez and her place in American history. Check it out at InezMilholland.org
