A monument to honor the achievements of Virginia’s women will be erected on Capitol Square once the funds are raised from private sources.  The monument is said to be the first of its kind in the nation… and will join the legendary statues of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Patrick Henry, and other historic icons on the grounds of the State Capitol.  As Virginia Public Radio’s Anne Marie Morgan reports, a design that pays tribute to specific individuals AND women from all walks of life has been selected.
