Dedicated on August 26, 2006, "Tennessee Woman Suffrage Memorial"in Market Square, Knoxville, Tennessee, portrays statues of 3 women from East, Middle & West Tennessee by Nashville sculptor Alan LeQuire. On August 26, 1920, the Tennessee legislature ratified the 19th Amendment by a single vote, thus bringing suffrage to all women in the USA after many years' struggle by "suffragettes" such as the 3 leaders in this memorial, including Lizzie Crozier French [1851-1926] of Knoxville.
Private funds raised the money to place this statue on Market Square Mall. It features three determined looking suffragettes who seem unyielding in their quest to gain the ability to vote. The statue, nearby Krutch Park and walking around Market Square Mall are all completely free things to do in Knoxville. Free parking is available at the State Street Parking garage on weekends and on Friday after 6:00 pm.
