'Inez Milholland' Documentary Highlights Suffrage Movement Icon
A celebration of the centenary of women’s suffrage in New York state is the topic of the next presentation in the Gender and Women’s Studies Forum Thursday, March 2 from 12:30 to 1:45 p.m. in the Angell College Center Alumni Conference Room.
The documentary, “Inez Milholland: Forward Into Light,” highlights an icon of the suffrage movement who advocated for gender equity, racial justice, and free speech. She also spent her summers in Lewis, N.Y., on the land now occupied by the Meadowmount School of Music.
Local historian Helen Nerska of the Clinton County Historical Association will share stories from the archives of the history of suffrage in Clinton County, culled from resources in Feinberg Library’s Special Collections.
The Gender and Women’s Studies Forum is free and open to the public. For more information, contact Dr. Susan Mody, chair and associate professor of women’s studies, at 518-564-2809 or email [email protected].
