Remembering Inez is a "vivid, engaging account of a young woman who filled her short life with activity and meaning" (School Library Journal). Inez Milholland, a charismatic, thirty-year-old attorney, was a recognized and beloved leader in the New York woman suffrage movement when she suddenly collapsed and died in late 1916 while on a grueling speaking tour for the 19th Amendment. Using suffragists own words, Remembering Inez pays tribute to this beautiful young activist and the historic movement of which she was an important part. The book features stirring first-person accounts, heartfelt memorials, and Inez's historic "Appeal to the Women Voters of the West," rescued from the pages of history. In this classic speech, she passionately advocated gender solidarity among women and called for a controversial boycott of Democratic candidates because their party refused to support the suffrage amendment.
