Lillian Ascough

Lillian Ascough (1880–1974) was an American suffragist. She served as the Connecticut chair of the National Woman’s Party (NWP) and the vice president of the Michigan branch of the NWP. She was a speaker in the Suffrage Special, an event created by the Congressional Union for Woman Suffrage in 1916, which toured the “free states” which had already allowed women’s suffrage in the United States. This formal photographic portrait of Ascough was taken around 1915 and published in the magazine The Suffragist.
