Inez Milholland Boissevain Painting

Lawyer, activist, and social reformer, Inez Milholland Boissevain was an early National Woman’s Party leader. When she died during a suffrage speaking tour in 1916, she was celebrated as a martyr for the women’s movement. This painting memorializes her role as Joan of Arc, leading the March 3, 1913 suffrage parade down Pennsylvania Avenue on the eve of President Wilson’s inauguration.
