Description

This beautiful memorial to women everywhere depicts courageous, inspirational, and well-known women from around the world. The mural was painted in 1994 by a collaboration of women artists from various generations and ethnicities. Ten San Francisco women and numerous volunteers worked together to create the beautiful piece of art; even some local schoolchildren were involved in the project. It covers two exterior walls on the the Women's Building, making it one of the largest murals in San Francisco.
