For the first time since the civil rights movement there is a national reckoning around race in America. We seek to participate in this reckoning by finding creative ways to honor the voiceless, the minimized, the ignored with the erection of the “Mothers of Gynecology” 15' monument, to honor the sacrifice of Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsey, the enslaved experimental subjects of the “father of gynecology,” J. Marion Sims.
The monument will stand not far from where Sims’s experiments were conducted. Drawing on a comprehensive re-examination of Sims’s career, and never-before-seen archival documents that reveal the lives and fates of Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsey, the “Mothers of Gynecology” will act as a first step toward teaching and reimagining the true story of the nation, facing the injustice of the past and honoring the courage of overlooked heroes.
