This episode continues our conversation about the Adelaide Johnson's Portrait Monument to Lucretia Mott, Susan B. Anthony and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. In this show we discuss how the statue helps to unearth the linkages between the Suffrage Movement and the Peace through Law Movement. We focus on a project initiated by Dr. Hope Elizabeth May, who is the founder and President of the Cora di Brazzà Foundation. One of the initiatives of the Foundation titled "Forward Into Light" aims to uncover the linkages between the women's suffrage movement and the Peace through Law Movement. As a means to that end, Dr. May oversaw a project to create a replica of Johnson's statue with the 238 word inscription that was erased in 1921 and has not yet been restored. The statue was completed in 2021, marking the 100th anniversary of the unveiling of the statue in the Rotunda of the U.S. Capitol. In this show, we discuss this project and Dr. May's journey to replicate the statue.
