NY's Central park statues to honor 3 women

New York's Central Park will soon feature its first statue displaying the achievements of women when a piece of artwork honoring three famous suffragettes is displayed in the park.

The Guardian reported Monday that the city's Public Design Commission voted to allow the display of a statue by artist Meredith Bergmann depicting Sojourner Truth, Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony, three prominent advocates for women's right to vote in the U.S.

The design depicts Truth and Stanton sitting at a table discussing issues while Anthony stands behind the table between them, overlooking the conversation. The statue was reportedly made possible by $1.5 million in private funding raised by the Monumental Women nonprofit.
