A LONG-OVERDUE INITIATION, SAYS PAM ELAM
Pam Elam, president of the initiative to build a women’s suffrage statue in Central Park in NYC, says no one can expect that one statue will meet all the needs and desires of so many people who have been waiting so long for it. “Our statue project represents a long-overdue beginning. The timing is right as we get ready to celebrate the national woman suffrage centennial of the ratification of the 19th Amendment and the 200th anniversary of the birth of Susan B. Anthony, both in 2020. We hope that our effort will encourage others around the country and around the world to honor the women who inspire them in whatever ways they feel appropriate. Together, let’s make people aware of a history that fully, fairly, and finally includes the vast and varied roles women have played in it.”
