Womens Rights- Sarahs Office Janai&Sienna

Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony and Lucretia Mott
This group portrait monument to the pioneers of the woman suffrage movement, which won women the right to vote in 1920, was sculpted by Adelaide Johnson (1859-1955) from an 8-ton block of marble in Carrara, Italy. The monument features portrait busts of the leaders of the woman suffrage movement. The portraits are copies of the individual busts she carved for the Court of Honor of the Woman's Building at the World's Columbian Exhibition in 1893.
