“Inez Milholland was a radiant spokeswoman, a staunch advocate, and a tragic sacrifice as a result of the drive for women’s rights. Suffragists honored her when she was alive and even more so after she died. Inez inspired them. Her sacrificed for women did not go unnoticed then and has not been forgotten today. her iconic image and final battle cry—’How long must women wait for liberty?’—have echoed through the ensuing decades.”

SUFFRAGE MOVEMENT ART IS SOMETHING WE’RE SEEING A GREAT DEAL OF…
Meneese Wall is an example of someone who started out knowing relatively little about the first wave of the women’s rights movement. She started researching and then translated her insights and awareness into art. Her work has been featured in various venues. Meneese loves the spirit of the suffrage campaigning and this shows in her work!
