Keeping the goal of honoring suffragist Inez Milholland alive!

Santa, will you save the day for honoring Inez Milholland? on Vimeo.

Back in 2016, SuffrageCentennials.com was one of many supporters of those advocating that we remember Inez Milholland (1886-1916) who has been referred to often as the US suffrage martyr.

Marguerite Kearns and Bob Cooney were the national co-chairs for the effort by the National Women’s History Project (now the National Women’s History Alliance) to acknowledge the 100 years since the death of Inez and plan for her recognition during 2020, the national observance of 100 years since the passage and ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.

One of the activities of the 2016 national observance was the application to then-US President Obama to award Inez with a national citizens’ award. This didn’t happen, but this doesn’t mean that the momentum to honor Inez has evaporated. It continues.

If you’re looking for a way to honor Inez Milholland during the 2020 national centennial, look no further than arranging a showing of the 15-minute film by Martha Wheellock and Wild West Women.

The video trailer gives you a preview of the video and why it will make a terrific 2020 program for family, friends, organizations, schools, and other venues. Visit InezMilholland.org for the film trailer and information about Inez and the film DVD that was distributed to thousands of people and organizations across the nation during 2016.
