on time

waving or drowning
it's hard to determine here
unfinished business

n.b. This marble sculpture, carved by Adelaide Johnson, was presented to the US government in 1921 by the National Women’s Party.

Deliberately produced as emergent figures in knowledge that work to improve women’s rights is work in progress.

The women represented here are: Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Antony, and Lucy Mott. Rosa Parks is sat just along the line, “sitting so others might stand.”

I took a tour of the Capitol building led by a fantastic guide from the US Capitol Guide Service, which is maintained as a free service to educate everyone about the history at the heart of the USA’s national government. Educational, engaging and entertaining! An hour well spent.

The National Statuary Hall, US Capitol, (with brilliant guide).
