Fearless women: Build a Central Park statue to Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony

September 16, 2019  --  The monument, a tremendous addition to the city, should be built.... Stanton, Anthony and Truth, New Yorkers all, were giants of the women’s rights movement.

This installation has been a long time in coming, and both the Monumental Women Fund and the Girl Scouts Organization have fought valiantly for this statue. Think of all the young girls who walk through that park every day and then think of all the girls and women of color who walk through that park every day. Why is this issue still under debate or considered controversial when it had already passed all tests of historical relevance and been given a green light?

Due to the significant media coverage of the Monumental Women Statue endeavor and the inspirational women they represent a tsunami is happening across the country as communities are enthusiastically erecting statues to honor their own local suffrage leaders in commemoration of the Suffrage Centennial. Additionally, as the word spreads more and more people are excited about actually coming to NYC for the unveiling of the Women's Rights Pioneers Monument.
