You will be able to enter the monument grounds through the replica White House gates where you will see the Turning Point Plaza Rotunda featuring a Jail Door/Shackled Hands Suffragist Sculpture. The Plaza also features 19 informational stops mounted on ten interactive historic vignette stations that reflect on the memorial’s message of “empowerment.” One can contemplate the sojourn in the meditation garden or climb aboard an early 20th century rail car to experience how the suffragist’s traveled throughout the country advocating for voting rights for all women.
Conceptual Design Features
Entrance Plaza Gates are a replica of the White House gates where suffragists stood as “silent sentinels” demanding the right to vote and later held “watchfires for freedom” rallies. Names of contributors will be displayed on a Donor Wall next to the fence and gates. Commemorative Banners anchoring the entrance replicate those carried by the suffragists and will offer great photo opportunities.
