Controversial then and just as controversial now, suffragist and political activist Susan B. Anthony still speaks to many today: “Men, their rights, and nothing more; women, their rights, and nothing less.”
Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906) serves as a reminder to stand up for equal rights for women, for example, equal pay for equal work and women’s suffrage. Anthony traveled the USA delivering speeches regarding women’s suffrage, eventually forming the National Woman Suffrage Association. As such, this bust is the perfect gift for anyone striving for equality.

Monuments: Commemoration and Controversy (January 28--July 3, 20220 explores monuments and their representations in public spaces as flashpoints of fierce debate over national identity, politics, and race that have raged for centuries. Offering a historical foundation for understanding today’s controversies, the exhibition features fragments of a statue of King George III torn down by American Revolutionaries, a souvenir replica of a bulldozed monument by Harlem Renaissance sculptor Augusta Savage, and a maquette of New York City’s first public monument to a Black woman, Harriet Tubman, among other objects from the Museum’s collection. The exhibition reveals how monument-making and monument-breaking have long shaped American life as public statues have been celebrated, attacked, protested, altered, and removed.
