Adalaide Johnson (Mini Episode)

July 27, 2020

“So here you have all these women gathered at the Capitol, at a time where very few women serve in Congress, you have this monument that isn't just to quaintly acknowledge the 19th Amendment, it's a call to action for the next generation of women...and Congress is like let's take our pictures, let's celebrate, and then a couple days later, it goes down to the Crypt, which is basically a broom closet."



In our latest mini-episode, we take a look at the tumultuous history of The Portrait Monument at the United States Capitol Building and the eccentric feminist, Adelaide Johnson, who brought it to life.
