There’s publication in the works for a new book about the Silent Sentinels at the White House in 1917. Nebraska teacher Jason Nord launched the book with a Kickstarter campaign. There’s a need for educational materials for young audiences, Nord says. Find out next steps. http://www.suffragecentennials.com/?p=12190
Honor Inez Milholland, America’s suffrage martyr, by attending a series of preview screenings across the nation of the “Sufragette” film from the UK. Inez volunteered for the English movement and died in the course of her work for American women’s voting rights. This event is for October 1, 2015 in Geneva, NY.
With the anticipated release of the “Suffragette” film from the UK in October 2015, this is a reminder that the ties between the two votes for women movements (England and the U.S.) were close. Inez Milholland was part of a group of activists from the United States that participated in the English movement, so Inez was well known on both sides of the Atlantic. Get prepared for the 2016 centennial for Inez!
Follow the daily postings from now until the release of the “Suffragette” film from the UK. This film is expected to get plenty of attention which is good for the general awareness about the women’s suffrage movement and its place in history. Find out if the film is coming to theaters near you.
