THE FRANCES WILLARD MUNDS ARIZONA WOMAN SUFFRAGE MONUMENT
The Arizona Women’s History Alliance (AWHA) is commissioning and endowing a statue in Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza honoring Frances Willard Munds, a leader in the battle for Arizona Woman Suffrage and the movement for women’s rights. The creation of this statue of an individual woman will mark the first time that an Arizona woman’s contributions to this state and nation will be commemorated in statue form. With oversight from the Arizona Department of Administration, the site for this statue is in Arizona’s Capitol Mall. This location will ensure that many of the 82,000 people who visit Wesley Bolin Plaza each year will become more aware of a history that includes the important roles women have played.
The Alliance envisions a life-size statue that captures the personality and energy of five foot one inch (5’1’’) Munds (see photos of her on the cover page).
The statue must be installed on the site by October 17, 2020. The statue dedication will occur on November 5, 2020, celebrating the 108th year of Woman Suffrage in Arizona.
