InezdiedMarguerite Kearns is the editor of the Inez Milholland memorial site which isn’t just devoted to telling you about our U.S. suffrage martyr. She’s determined to make sure that Inez is remembered as the woman who died for U.S. women’s voting rights and that Inez is written into American history.

“I co-chaired the 2016 national centennial of Inez Milholland’s death with Robert P.J. Cooney for the National Women’s History Alliance (formerly the National Women’s History Project). Thousands of people from the US and around the world found out about our US suffrage martyr for the first time. However, the need has been so great that we continued this public relations effort through 2018,” Marguerite Kearns said.

Marguerite is the granddaughter of suffrage activist Edna Kearns. This means her grandmother Edna knew and worked with Inez Milholland. Your grandmother, great-grandmother, ancestors and other family members were well aware of Inez putting her body on the line for women’s freedom.



Inez and tens of thousands of women were in the first wave of activism around women’s rights. There have been four such waves. When we stand together and honor these four waves, WE ARE STRONG. That’s what this site is about. To spread the word about the tens of thousands who marched with and behind Inez Milholland.

Marguerite Kearns and Robert P.J. Cooney Jr.  directed the 2016 centennial observance of Inez Milholland’s death. The centennial observance was under the umbrella of the National Women’s History Project that has been tracking women’s history for 40 years and counting.

This site is for events and announcements about Inez Milholland, the U.S. suffrage martyr. Our job is to keep the memory of Inez Milholland alive. She will receive a special place in the nation’s awareness during 2020, the nation’s national suffrage centennial when American women will have been voting for 100 years.
