Inez Milholland Boissevain - The public face of Woman Suffrage was ahead of her time. She was intelligent, beautiful and an eloquent speaker. She graduated from Vassar College and became a labor attorney. She not only fought for woman suffrage, but also for worker’s rights. She died of pernicious anemia at the age of 30, while on a western states speaking tour on woman suffrage.

“Elizabeth Kent, wife of Senator William Kent, said that Inez was ‘unafraid to be herself, even though she knew that self, marching in advance with eyes on tomorrow, would not be understood by the many with eyes on today…’ ” National Womans Party

Milholland was best known for leading the March 3, 1913 pre-inaugural suffrage parade of 8000 women and men on a white horse. She carried a long banner with the words, “Forward Out of Darkness, Leave Behind the Night, Forward Out of Error, Forward Into Light.” Those words eventually became the slogan of the National Woman’s Party.

The back of the pendant bares the words by Inez Milholland Boissevain, “Votes for Women.” It was a popular slogan of both the British and American suffragist during the late 1800’s through the early 1900’s.

This pendant is made from hand cut copper. It has several layers of kiln fired vitreous enamel (ground glass) on both sides. Her image, courtesy of The Library of Congress, was applied using a waterslide decal. Waterslide decals are permanent once fired.

Dimensions:

Pendant is 2 3/4” wide by 1 1/2” tall. The chain is 18” long, and the sterling silver toggle clasp, stamped with the words “equality for all,” is 1 3/16” long by 1/4” tall.
