Harriet Tubman Statue closer to reality because of EVE

Op-ed by Dr. Lynette Long, president of EVE.

Tubman statue would help write women back into history
The Maryland General Assembly has an opportunity to send a new representative to the United States Capitol. This person wouldn't be a voting member of Congress but would stand tall in the halls of the Capitol and serve as a symbol of freedom, courage and equality to all Americans. This session, the Maryland legislature will decide whether or not to replace the statue of John Hanson that has stood in National Statuary Hall for more than 100 years with one ofHarriet Tubman.
