""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!

"Lady Liberty is one of the United States' most famous symbols. But this female personification of freedom and hope stands virtually alone in a sea of male-centered monuments that dot the American landscape. Let's put women on the map."
