Long list of new cities for “Suffragette” film for November 6, 2015. Movie opening on October 23. It’s not clear yet whether or not the movie will have a widespread release across the United States. England’s suffrage martyr, Emily Davison, is included in this film. This brings attention to U.S. suffrage martyr, Inez Milholland who worked in the English movement, as did other American women.
Finally, the “Suffragette” film will hit the theaters soon. And if you’re looking for a special way to honor Inez, park yourself in a seat and sit back and enjoy. This film will make the work of promoting America’s suffrage martyr easier during 2016, not that “easy” is an appropriate word to describe what’s involved in promoting a suffrage centennial. Mark these words. Most Americans haven’t heard of Inez Milholland. This is changing. Become a partner of the 2016 Inez Milholland centennial. Visit the national web site.
