Dear Friends of Monumental Women,
With your support, Monumental Women broke the bronze ceiling in New York City’s Central Park on August 26, 2020 with the unveiling of our Women’s Rights Pioneers Monument
. And just as we hoped, our statue honoring Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony has become a go-to location, inspiring visitors and campaigns across the country to honor diverse women in our public spaces.
In 2021, we created our Toolkit for Change
, helping efforts nationwide to reimagine public spaces to pay tribute to the women who helped create and inspire those communities. We also launched our virtual free NYC Women’s Rights History Trail
as part of our continued educational mission to create a full and fair historical record that includes the vast and varied contributions of all women. Programs like these were made possible because of you
, committed individuals who share our vision of moving history forward with the power of Women’s History.
But, as we reflect on this year, we too often have to ask: “Where are the women?” We must continue to fight for change and challenge municipalities
to make our public spaces truly reflect and respect all of us. And we need your help!
Please help us continue and expand our work in 2022 with a DONATION to Monumental Women. Thank you, and happy holidays!
