How to Build a Statue
Less than 4% of Australia’s statues represent historical female figures. In Australia, there are more statues of animals than there are of women. Fortunately, there are some great movements around Australia working to change this and make women more visible in the physical landscape.

If you know of any individuals or organisations working to increase the number of female statues, both in Australia and around the world, write to us at hello@sheshapeshistory.com.au.
