The planning is underway for the national suffrage centennial observance when Anerican women will have been voting for one hundred years. We want Inez Milholland to take her place among those honored. Here’s the update on the planning group and task force that’s underway.
It’s Women’s History Month and you can order Inez buttons and posters. Schools are ordering materials to introduce students to our very own U.S. suffrage martyr. It’s a big election year in 2016 and what better way to spread the word about the long struggle to win the vote for women! Take note: the Inez Milholland film will be available at the end of April 2016. No better way than to introduce Inez with a film that will touch your heart. It’s free, so get busy planning now. Check with the web site: InezMilhollandCentennial.com. It’s a special program of the National Women’s History Project.
Some cool links to resources to give you a boost during Women’s History Month for the centennial observance of the death of Inez Milholland.
Residents of the Adirondacks in upstate New York are aware of the 2016 Inez Milholland centennial observance with the news items just posted in the “Adirondack Almanac.” Her grave in Lewis, NY can be visited by the public, although it’s up near the Canadian border. But it’s worth a visit for the determined and strong of heart.
The Inez Milholland Centennial supports the recognition of this beloved suffragist on the centennial of her death. We’re also encouraging communities nationwide to honor and celebrate their own state and local suffrage activists.
