August 26th is Women’s Equality Day. Of all other days in the year, honor Inez Milholland on this day even if it is to register to vote or go out to lunch with friends and family members with Inez in mind.
Women’s Equality Day commemorates the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. By honoring this day, you are participating in a very important act of remembering generations of women before us who sacrificed with their activism for us.
Check the centennial web site for Inez that was established in 2016 when the National Women’s History Project set aside an entire year to honor the 100 years that had passed since the death of Inez. Marguerite Kearns and Robert P.J. Cooney coordinated the year-long observance. Martha Wheelock produced a 15-minute film that has been used in classrooms across the nation.
Honor Inez. She deserves a tribute.
