Monumental Ladies

A guide book to finding statues and historical sites honoring women in the United States

There is a book in the works!

 

WHAT CRITERIA HAS TO BE MET TO BE INCLUDED IN THE BOOK?

  • There has to be a location you can physically visit. 
  • The location has to be in the United States. 
  •  Location has to be in honor of a named real woman and not simply a representa-tion of women as a gender.

I am searching the United States for women who have been honored, remembered, and memorialized.

  • Statues
  • sculptures
  • parks
  • schools
  • historical markers
  • historical sites
  • museums
  • libraries
  • fountains
  • streets
  • portraits
  • plaques
  • and more

The book is coming! Profiles of women in each state that are amazingly ambitious, interesting, smart, inventive, creative, and memorable.


In the meantime I hope you enjoy the women profiled here from each state.


Scroll on down. Your purchases help support this project to honor the women who paved the way and continue to astound us with their courage, creativity, and thoughtfulness.

It appears the memoirs of the First Lady began with Lady Bird Johnson. Since then, every first lady, with the exception of Pat Nixon, has written her memoirs. Some of them, as you will see, have also written other books as well as their memoirs. There were, of course, a few before Mrs. Johnson that wrote their memoirs.
