Our history, our right, our statue, it's time

suffrage statue CAMpaign

As part of Arizona’s celebration of the passage of the 19th Amendment, the Arizona Women’s History Alliance wants to honor the Arizona women who worked so hard for the passage of our state’s suffrage law. We have launched a Suffrage Statue Campaign to raise funds in order to place a statue of Frances Willard Munds, President of Arizona Equal Suffrage Association, in Arizona’s capitol mall in 2020.

THE STATUE

Local artist Stephanie Hunter is the sculptor for the Francis Willard Munds Suffrage Statue. Here is a sneak-peak of the clay study she made in preparation for sculpting the statue.

Why Frances Willard Munds?

  • She mobilized Arizona women in 1912 to fight for their right to vote

  • She stood up for the women of Arizona state, let’s help her stand on Wesley Bolin Plaza

  • She was elected Arizona’s first female Senator and worked for the rights of women and children

  • 8 years before the passage of the 19th amendment to the US Constitution she convinced 65% of Arizona’s male electorate to vote “Yes” for Arizona women’s right to vote

help us break the bronze ceiling

On April 23, 2019, Governor Doug Ducey signed HB 2183 (the Frances Munds Suffrage Memorial) into law. This means her statue can now stand on Wesley Bolin Plaza! We need you and we need to raise $250,000 for the cost of the statue.

This is the first statue of a woman on state land
