“This film, which traces the life of an indefatigable fighter for women’s rights, couldn’t be more timely. Milholland’s trailblazing feminist battle is a model for us all, and this film is an inspiring call to action. .. Thank you to the writer, producer, director of the film, Martha Wheelock and to producer Zoe Nicholson for introducing us to Inez.”
Ivana Massetti, Whole Life Times, Harvest Issue, 2016

“ In “Inez Milholland ~ Forward Into Light” , director/writer Martha Wheelock accomplishes a visually interesting, moving and inspiring film which tells the story of the young and unknown to most of us, suffragist. After viewing this documentary, Inez Milholland, certainly qualifies as an American icon and an unsung hero, prompting one to look further into suffragist history.”
