A groundbreaking will be held Monday in Richmond, Virginia, for a monument that will honor the legacies of 12 Virginia women.
The monument, called "Voices from the Garden," will recognize contributions women have made to Virginia. It will feature 12 bronze statues of women important to Virginia's history and there will also be a "Wall of Honor"' naming several hundred other women.
Martha Washington and Maggie L. Walker are among the 12 bronze statues that will be featured in the display.
