Breaking the "Bronze Ceiling" in the USA

April 20, 2017

"Where are the Women?" is the campiagn for a statue of the first real women in New York's Central Park.

The park is, of course, liberally supplied with icons of male power and status, but not a single real woman. Alice in Wonderland is the closest they have managed. Two prominent suffragettes have been suggested and "The Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Statue Fund" is working for the placement of a statue of the two women's rights pioneers in Central Park. This is one aspect of the wider push for recognition of women's achievments in the states, represented by EVE  - Equal Visibility Everywhere - organisation which works for all kinds of public memorials, statues, stamps, street names etc.
