AAUW La Crosse has been working with UWL student Carly Buchholz to bring awareness of the Bronze Ceiling to La Crosse.
Across the country there is a growing movement to recognize noteworthy women and their historical contributions through public monuments. Unfortunately, less than 7% of the 5,193 monuments in the United States presently recognize women. In NYC’s Central Park a new monument to Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony will be unveiled in August 2020. Lexington, KY has unveiled a sculpture representing 5 suffragists that will be placed downtown next year. Carly has written a paper about the project, put up a display at the Main Public Library in La Crosse and started an online petition for La Crosse to put a similar statue in a public park.  Please check out her display, up through January 2020, and sign the online petition.  Her goal is to reach 1000 signatures!
