About Inez Milholland

INEZ MILHOLLAND CENTENNIAL, 1916-2016
WHO WAS INEZ MILHOLLAND? 
WHY HAVEN’T WE HEARD ABOUT HER? 
WHAT’S A QUICK WAY TO UNDERSTAND WHY INEZ MILHOLLAND HAD SUCH AN IMPACT ON THE PEOPLE OF HER TIME?
Inez Milholland poster INEZ MILHOLLAND (1886-1916) is the United States suffrage martyr. Inez gave her life while campaigning for the right of American women to vote. We honor Inez during 2016, her centennial observance year, because she represents the tens of thousands of activists like her, both leaders and grassroots organizers, who dedicated themselves to winning women’s voting rights from 1848 to 1920.
You may have seen photos of Inez on a horse leading the big women’s suffrage parade in Washington, DC in 1913. But you may not have connected this to the fact that Inez became the U.S. suffrage martyr three years later. Inez collapsed on a lecture platform while on the campaign trail in November 1916 to speak to citizens of the Western states about the importance of American women standing together.
