  • Description

    The Boston Women’s Memorial is a monument dedicated to three women who challenged norms and shaped US history: Abigail Adams, the wife and advisor of President John Adams, Lucy Stone, the founder of the ‘Woman’s Journal,’ and Phillis Wheatley, the enslaved poet.
    As their real-life personas, the three sculptures, made by Meredith Bergmann, are redefining conventions. Instead of standing up high on their pedestals, they use it as a prop, encouraging people to interact with them. Each statue symbolizes the life story of the woman it represents and her influence on society via the written word. The memorial was dedicated on October 25th, 2003.
