Wander through Central Park past monuments to figures including Christopher Columbus, Alexander Hamilton, William Shakespeare and Sir Walter Scott, and it may suddenly hit you: Where are the women?
There are none, if you discount fictional characters like Mother Goose and Alice in Wonderland.
Even a heroic dog has its place amid the park's 843 acres of greenery, but every one of the 23 statues or busts of real humans in the park honors a famous man.
Some Girl Scouts are now trying to change that. They've joined activists raising money for a park monument to two women who revolutionized the country: suffragists Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony.
