Happy holidays through the New Year from your suffrage centennial friends!
Statue projects commemorating Votes for Women activists are expensive. There are statues popping up all over the US, including statues of Sojourner Truth and Rosalie Jones planned by the State of New York; the statue of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony in NYC’s Central Park; statues of Tennessee’s suffrage activists involved in the ratification of the 19th Amendment to the US Constitution; and more.
A statue project to honor Emily Davison, the UK’s suffrage martyr, is underway. Davison died on June 8, 1913. emilydavisonmemorialproject.wordpress.com
No statue exists or is planned to honor Inez Milholland, the US suffrage martyr, who died in 1916 in California.
