Throughout 2018, the National Women’s History Project honored fifteen outstanding women for their unrelenting and inspirational persistence, and for understanding that, by fighting all forms of discrimination against women and girls, they are shaping America’s history and our future.  These 2018 Honorees refused to be silenced.  Their lives demonstrate the power of voice, of taking action, and of believing that meaningful and lasting change is possible.

The National Women’s History Project was behind the 2016 centennial observance of the death of Inez Milholland in 1916.

In 2017, many individuals and organizations across the nation continued honoring Inez through events and special occasions. In 2018, the NWHP was behind nominating Inez to be inducted in the National Women’s Hall of Fame for 2019. Let’s cross our fingers that it happens!
