This is the story of one woman's passion and crusade to place a monument of the leaders of the suffrage movement in the Capitol of the United States. The untiring work of these suffrage pioneers, Lucretia Mott, Elizabeth Cady Stanton, and Susan B. Anthony resulted in the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment to the Constitution of the United States giving women the right to vote. Adelaide Johnson, the sculptor, overcame constant financial obstacles, infighting between the National Woman's Suffrage Association and the National Woman's Party, and a Congress reluctant to place her monument in the Capitol. Ahead of its time, her design for the monument perplexed most in the women's movements. Now, the purposely unfinished design is finally recognized for what Adelaide intended, as a symbol for women everywhere that there is more work to be done. Adelaide's story begins in Midwest America and moves back and forth between Washington, DC and Italy until the monument is completed and placed in the Capitol Rotunda. The book includes thirteen photographs.

About the Author:

Catherine Novak Davidson is captivated by art and while she values the aesthetic and beauty what intrigues her is the process, motivation, and intent of the artist and the effect their work has on the audience, Davidson hopes that this research into the life and crusade of Adelaide Johnson results in a better understanding of this unusual monument. Davidson has a BFA from The Juilliard School and an MS from Hunter College, both in New York City. Richard F. Novak has been a sculptor for forty years and has over sixty works in public, corporate, and private collections. His last book, Topping The Dome, was about the life of Thomas Crawford and his sculpture Statue of Freedom that sits atop the Capitol Dome in Washington, DC. He is also a Professor Emeritus (MD) at the University of Illinois College of Medicine.
