It was with great delight that we found out about the Lifetime Herstory Map - https://www.mylifetime.com/about-lifetimes-herstory-map-a-guide-to-americas-statues-of-women . Sadly, we saw that they only had one Kentucky woman monument on their map: Elizabeth Rogers in Berea, on Boone Street. She was the wife of Berea College principal, John A.R.

I would like to invite my fellow scholars to visit my site The Memorial Project.
