Today in women’s history we are celebrating Inez Milholland. Milholland charged a horse through a crowd of misogynists to fight for equality.

Via the Washington Post:

Inez Milholland, a 26-year-old lawyer dubbed the “beautifulest” suffragist by the New York Tribune, braced herself against the cold March breeze as she led the long procession of women demanding the right to vote. Her horse, Grey Dawn, trotted so quickly that soon the 8,000 suffragists in costumes and on floats lagged several blocks behind her, according to “The Life and Times of Inez Milholland,” a biography of the trailblazer by Linda Lumsden.

“She projected power, bravery and intelligence,” Lumsden, a University of Arizona professor, said in a phone interview. “She cast women from victims to actors and gave the movement a modern face.”
