An initiative of The Cora di Brazzà Foundation, "Forward into Light" highlights the linkages between two movements: the Women's Suffrage movement and the Peace Through Law Movement. We "enter the forest" of these linkages by focusing on specific visual objects such as the The International Peace Flag, The Universal Peace Badge, and The Portrait Monument to Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Highly symbolic, these "information delivery devices" unlock a treasure trove of stories rich with moral energy, and connect persons to inspiring individuals thereby helping to satisfy the need to belong in a nourishing and healthy way.

The phrase "Forward Into Light" became associated with suffragist and pacifist
Inez Milholland. The slogan "Forward Out of Darkness, Leave Behind The Night, Forward Out of Error, Forward Into Light" was used on the banners and other materials of The National Woman's Party, which was instrumental in the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution on August 26, 1920. In 1923, the National Woman's Party also introduced the Equal Rights Amendment (also known as the "Lucretia Mott Amendment"). The Equal Rights Amendment (ERA) has yet to be ratified. The Hulu miniseries "Mrs. America" focuses on the fight for the ERA in the 1970s. See our Products Page for the "Question Producer", a pin created in 1927 for the campaign for the ERA, and containing symbolism that was used by the Peace through Law Movement.
