Inez Milholland

Inez Milholland was a suffragist in Washington, DC, in the early 20th century. She organized a march on the Washington Mall in 1913 to argue for women’s right to vote. She rode a white horse while dressed in flowing robes.

Three years later, she was dead. She ignored her own health problems to travel around the country giving speeches for suffrage. She collapsed and died during a speech in 1916. At the time, she was hailed as a martyr for the cause.

100 years after suffrage march, activists walk in tradition of Inez Milholland – The Washington Post.
