The playwright, Dr. Marlin, was for more than a decade chief economist in the Office of the New York City Comptroller and is the great-nephew of Inez Milholland, a lawyer and member of the National Woman’s Party.

The Turning Point Suffragist Memorial Association (TPSMA) is a 501(c)(3), volunteer-led Virginia corporation. TPSMA was created to illuminate a crucial moment in history for American women, largely untold, through construction of a national suffragist memorial, establishing the Turning Point Institute and developing a Constitution Trail. The memorial will reflect the strength of more than five million women who joined in the struggle and the significance of their 72-year fight to win the vote. In partnership with NOVA Parks, the memorial will be located within Occoquan Regional Park, Fairfax County, Virginia, in part of the historic prison grounds where scores of suffragists who picketed the White House in 1917 were inhumanely imprisoned, beaten and brutalized.
