“Each time a girl opens a book and reads a womanless history, she learns she is worth less.”
Dr. Myra Pollack Sadker
This Monument will send a message that women have a Voice, can make a difference and change the World.
The Legislative hurdle has been cleared and we now have 7 years to choose, design and construct a Monument Site in addition to raising all the money.
While we hope to fund the Monument entirely with small grassroots donations we recognize the need for the generous support of like-minded Corporations and Foundations.
Your generous Sponsorship will ensure that there is a Women’ Monument in Washington D.C. that will inspire our daughters to aspire to greatness.
Off-Site Donor Recognition
Off-site donor recognition is the acknowledgement of contributions in a manner that does not involve the monument or memorial location.
This recognition can include, but is not limited to, thank you letters, awards, publicity, press conferences, mementos, and online acknowledgment.
Temporary On-Site Donor Recognition
The law provides us with limited ability to recognize donors on-site, subject to the approval/permission of the Secretary of the Interior
“inside an ancillary structure associated with the commemorative work or as part of a manmade landscape feature at the commemorative work.”
The acknowledgment also must be
(A) limited to an appropriate statement;
(B) displayed in a form in accordance with NPS guidelines;
(C) be displayed for a period of up to 10 years, with the display period to be commensurate with the level of the contribution.
(D) be freestanding; and
(E) not be affixed to—
(i) any landscape feature at the commemorative work; or
(ii) any object in a museum collection.
We need to be reminded that Equality of Rights needs to be continually fought for and expanded upon. We need the National Women’s Monument in Washington DC.
