  • Description
    Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial

    The Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial is a monument commemorating the women who campaigned for women’s right to vote in Tennessee, the last state to ratify the constitution.

    The life-size bronze statue, made by the sculptor Alan LeQuire, depicts three pioneers of the women’s suffrage movement in Tennessee: Elizabeth Avery Meriwether, Lizzie Crozier French, and Anne Dallas Dudley.
    Each of them represents one of Tennessee’s three grand divisions: East Tennessee, Middle Tennessee, and West Tennessee.
    The quotations of the suffrage movement campaigners are engraved on the base of the sculpture to inspire the visitors.
