Inez attended Vassar College, graduating in 1909. While there she was a strong worker protesting the fact that women were not yet allowed to vote. She went on to become a well known leader and public speaker in the women's suffrage movement.
Here Inez is riding in a parade in 1912 in New York City. The photo was made into a post card.
On the back of this postcard is a note from Inez's sister Vida to my grandmother. I'm sure there was a wonderful story about listening to a radio, but I do not know what it was.
Here is Vida on the left with her famous sister, Inez.
In 1913, on the day before Woodrow Wilson's innauguration, Inez led a suffrage parade in Washington, D.C.
This is the poster for the National Women's Party, featuring an artist's rendition of Inez in that parade in Washington. Inez married that year, becoming the bride of Eugen Boissevain. Three years later in 1916 Inez died at the age of 30 while on a speaking tour in California. Several years later Mr. Boissevain married Edna St.Vincent Millay.
To a "north country" neighbor, many thanks to you Inez, for your hard work so many years ago in bringing the vote to women!
