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.

We need your support!
