Brief Description

The Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony Statue Fund Inc. (The Statue Fund) is commissioning and endowing a monument in Central Park honoring Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, pioneers in the battle for Woman Suffrage and the movement for women’s rights. The creation of this monument representing real women will mark the first time in the 164-year history of Central Park that women's contributions to this city, state, and nation will be commemorated in statue form. With support from the NYC Parks Department and the Central Park Conservancy, the site for this monument is in The Mall of Central Park. This location will ensure that many of the 42 million people who visit Central Park each year will become more aware of a history that fully and fairly includes the important roles women have played in it.
