In honor of National Women’s Month, we are showcasing Inez Milholland Boissevain.

According to The Long Island Traveler, Inez’s father, John Milholland, owned “7 lots”

on Nostrand Parkway by Rocky Point on Shelter Island in 1897. 

Inez was a leader of the suffrage movement, a lawyer, and a peace activist.

This photograph, courtesy of The Library of Congress, shows Inez preparing to

lead the March 3, 1913 suffrage parade in Washington, D.C.
