Title: Inez: The Life and Times of Inez Milholland
Publisher: Bloomington: Indiana University Press, 2004.
This biography focuses on the radical suffragist and free love advocate who died on a lecture tour, becoming a young martyr of the American women's suffrage movement. Born in New York and suspended from Vassar College for organizing a women's suffrage meeting, Inez Milholland is best remembered for the images of her leading the Washington D.C. parade in 1913 on a white charger. Watch as Linda J. Lumsden, a journalism professor at the University of Arizona, speaks in 2017 about her book in a CNN interview (https://www.c-span.org/video/?425119-7/inez). Lumsden wrote in a heroic style that implicitly challenges scholars experienced in U.S. women's history to take on this important icon to provide a more critical analysis of the context and impact of Milholland's activism and strategies on behalf the fight for women's rights. Her papers are available for researchers at the Radcliffe Institute, Harvard University.
