UNVEILING – ALICE PAUL Bronze Bust Rhode Island-based sculptor Victoria
Guerina has gifted her monumental new work to this church’s congregation.
This piece, part of the sculptor’s Notable Women series, commemorates the
day and place in Seneca Falls when Alice Paul spoke from the church’s pulpit
which remains in use to this day. On July 21, 1923 Alice Paul, suffragist,
political activist and civic leader, delivered remarks seeking equality for
both women and men under federal law. Her words became the text of the Equal Rights Amendment, and today almost 100 years later, the ERA is still only proposed and NOT YET ratified for inclusion into the US Constitution!
