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.

A sampling of the many books scheduled for publication that have been planned to coincide with the 2020 women’s suffrage centennial and the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution.
NOW is the time to firm up plans for 2020, the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution. The word is out that late August is when many individuals, organizations, and institutions are scheduling their special events and programming. The entire year of 2020, however, is filling up now. And to many, the centennial observance started in August of this year. Don’t forget March, Women’s History Month. Or July when festivities include events in Seneca Falls, New York. Or any date that coincides with calendars for a wide variety of organizations.
