Voices of Persistence: Filmmakers Behind Films on Inez Milholland and the American Suffrage Movement

October 31, 2020

In 1916 suffragist Inez Milholland went up against President Woodrow Wilson who, like many men of the time, saw the possibility of women voting as a threat. With one of the most important voting days in our lifetime right around the corner, I talk with filmmakers who’ve made both narrative and documentary films about Inez and her fight to make sure every American has the right to vote. Join me, Amy Walker, Jessica Graham, and Martha Wheelock.

More on the symbols of the suffrage movement including the 19th Amendment ratification flag. 

More on Inez and her biography Amy mentions. And her fellow women's rights warrior Alice Paul. 

And more resources at the National Women's History Alliance.

The radical tea towel company Martha loves.

Bob Cooney's book on Winning the Vote.

Martha's film on Inez, Amy and Jessica's film.
