Across the country there is a growing movement to recognize noteworthy women and their historical contributions through public monuments. Unfortunately, less than 7% of the 5,193 monuments in the United States presently recognize women. In Lexington, Kentucky there are none. We are about to change that statistic with the “Breaking the Bronze Ceiling” initiative.

Lexington Mayor Linda Gorton and the Breaking the Bronze Ceiling Steering Committee invite you to a special celebration of Women’s Equality Day on August 26th, commemorating the passage in 1920 of the 19th Amendment to the Constitution giving women the right to vote.

We’ll have important news about the Breaking the Bronze Ceiling campaign to build a monument in downtown Lexington in 2020 recognizing the historic contributions of women.

Please join us for this special announcement.

10:00 AM
Monday, August 26th, 2019
Corner of Vine and Mill streets.
Free and open to the public.

Attendees are encouraged to wear white apparel to show their support, borrowing from the color used by the early 20th-century movement to recognize women’s right to vote. (Optional.)

August 26th is designated as the official Women’s Equality Day in the United States.

In the event of severe weather, the festivities will move to the Fifth Third Pavilion on West Main Street next to the historic courthouse.
