‘Equality Trailblazers’ is Alan LeQuire’s fifth monument, in three cities commemorating Woman Suffrage. This public memorial honors activists from Shelby County, TN who participated in the nonviolent efforts to win the right to vote for American women.

Memphis Equality Trailblazers Monument.
The bronze busts, and accompanying 60-ft wall with bios, honor individuals who were instrumental in the woman suffrage movement, as well as those whose careers were made possible by the suffragists’ victory.
