about this item

Weber, an author, independent scholar, lecturer, and storyteller who researches and writes about regional history and women's history, details the history of sculptor Adelaide Johnson's Portrait Monument to Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, placed in the Capitol in 1921 and often referred to as the Suffrage Statue. It is the first and only sculpture of women in the Rotunda. She focuses on the perspective of Johnson, detailing her personality and sculpting career and the history of Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, and the women's rights movement, as well as the progress of women as illustrated at the 1893 World Fair and the conflict over the three original portrait busts; the drama involved when Johnson decided to merge the three busts into one sculpture; its sculpting, placing, and unveiling; the monument's inscription and artistry, as well as its relocation and treatments, celebrations, controversies, and connection to the Equal Rights Amendment; and more recent interpretations of the monument, efforts to relocate it to the Rotunda in the 1990s, and the consequences of its new prominence.
