The continuing inspiration of Inez Milholland

Author Sandra Weber, author of new book on suffrage movement from McFarland Press (2016), reminds us of how Inez Milholland inspired American women 100 years ago and she continues to inspire today. See article.

Weber draws attention to the 2015 nomination of Milholland for a citizens medal that is part of the Obama administration’s unfinished business in mid January 2017. Weber is the author of “The Woman Suffrage Statue” published in 2016 by McFarland.

One hundred years ago on Christmas Day in 1916, the city of Washington, DC was stirring with citizens from around the nation honoring Inez Milholland, America’s suffrage martyr. It is the least we can do today to support President Obama in awarding Inez with the nation’s second highest honor, the presidential citizens medal. In 2016 we witnessed the first time that a woman ran for the nation’s highest office. Although not successful, it is a milestone. A citizens medal for Inez Milholland will recognize the hard work and sacrifices of millions of women over the course of a century. It will give hope to future generations.
