""If we look to our past there were many talented women who made significant contributions in every field of life but are left unseen and unheard.

It's about time we change that!


Favorite statue: Fearless Girl

This statue depicts our future generation of strong girls who will stand strong against the bullies of the world who would try to bring them down! "
