Monumental Women

As a woman-owned business, it’s no surprise our company is a big supporter of women in all endeavors. It’s why we’re celebrating this cultural milestone.

Today, in New York City’s Central Park, the FIRST EVER statue of real-life women was unveiled. Move over Alice in Wonderland, Mother Goose, and Juliet Capulet – REAL women are in town now. And it only took about 167 years!

In this magnificent work, the three women depicted are Sojourner Truth, Susan B. Anthony, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton, ALL dedicated, relentless fighters for women’s’ right to vote.

And let’s not overlook the fantastic artist who designed this stunning piece, the Breaker-of-the-Bronze-Ceiling, Meredith Bergmann.

It’s been said several times today that the best way to honor these women’s contribution is to VOTE; it’s hard to imagine a better means.

Oh, and one other important thing about today, it’s International Dog Day.

While real-life women had to wait until 2020 to be ‘statued’ in Central Park, and real-life men had to wait until about 1956, a famous DOG was unveiled in 1925.

Balto, the sled dog who helped save Nome Alaska from a diphtheria outbreak by delivering life-saving serum, stands proudly in his park home, west of 67th Street and East Drive.
