The RememberingInez.com website offers more information about Inez, portions of her final 1916 speech, and downloadable photographs.
The goal of the campaign is to do more than just make Inez someone only to be appreciated from a distance. She deserves to be known as a real, complex woman who is representative of tens of thousands of American women who worked and sacrificed together to accomplish something that must have seemed impossible at the time. The Inez Milholland Centennial honors them and the great prize of democracy they won for half the country.
