12 Monuments Dedicated to Amazing Women


There are monuments to women you've never heard of scattered around the world. In Greece, you'll find a monument to a village of women and children who committed suicide rather than be captured by the Turks of the Ottoman Empire. Another, in Ottawa, commemorates the five women who sparked the women’s rights movement in Canada in 1920s. The Red Light District Statue in Amsterdam pays tribute to famous prostitutes! Learn about these and more at Web Urbanist. Pictured is the Vrouemonument in South Africa, dedicated to the 27,000 women who died in British camps during the Boer War. Link -via Look At This
