Women’s History Month is an annually declared month that highlights the contributions of women to events in history and contemporary society.
Breaking the Bronze Ceiling is a campaign to erect a monument to celebrate the history of women in Lexington and Fayette County, Kentucky. The goal is to have a monument in place in a prominent downtown Lexington location in 2020 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the 19th Amendment, giving women the right to vote.
