Marilla Ricker’s portrait now hangs in the New Hampshire State House in Concord after many months of fundraising and planning. Rep. Renny Cushing, D-Hampton, right, is pictured with some ad hoc committee members. From left, Joni Esperian, Liz Tentarelli, and artist Kate Gridley.

Marilla Marks Ricker (1840-1920) was a suffragist, philanthropist, lawyer, and freethinker. She made significant and lasting contributions to the issues of women’s rights and religion through her actions and her writings.

Ricker could try cases in front of the U.S. Supreme Court and ran for governor, but she was still unable to vote.
