Central Park Honoring Real Life Women

The news has already quoted that in the year 2020, New York officials have approved that Central Park will receive its first figures based upon real life women.  The two amazing honorees are Susan B. Anthony and Miss Elizabeth Cady Stanton.  The two women’s statues will mark the grand, one-hundredth anniversary of our 19th Amendment, which gave many women the remarkable right to vote.  Even though Central Park has quite a lot of figures of well-to-do men, all the sculptures of women in the park presently signify mystical creatures or either illusory characters.  The new sculptures coming in 2020 will place the status of womanhood at an all-time high.  The two sculptures of the two women getting ready to be displayed are not only real from History long ago, but Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton played a huge role in the women’s suffering movement.  The figures are expected to bring out a lot of praise throughout America and Central Park.

Of course, there always has to be a little setback.  There has already been some enquiring whether Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Stanton are the suitable selection.  What would be the reasoning for questioning like this?  Well, keep in mind that these two women were involved with racial politics and had more focus on white women’s suffrage over the common voting rights for all women.  There are always two sides to every story, that’s for sure.  Keep in mind that on the other side of the fence, these two women didn’t hold to racial beliefs for all their lives.  Susan and Elizabeth were at one time, a member of the American Equal Rights Association (AERA).  This was a group in which the two women formed with Fredrick Douglass, as well various other activists in 1866.  The actual goal of the AERA was to win voting rights for both women, as well African Americans.  Both women, Susan and Elizabeth passed away more than a decade before the 19th Amendment was passed, but we all can agree that these two figures played a huge role in some of the freedom’s in which women have today.
