Is the significant first step in creating a public art collection that more fully represents the diverse history of New York City, beginning with commemorations of visionary and inspiring women.

Through August 1, She Built NYC! invites New York City residents to submit nominations for women or events in women’s history that should be considered for future public commemorations. We ask that individuals limit their nominations to no more than 3.

Criteria for Nominations

  • Event, person, or group must have a *significant* connection to NYC
  • If an event, it must have happened at least 20 years ago; If a person of significance, that person must no longer be living and must be known for an event, movement, or action that took place at least 20 years ago
  • Groups or categories of women, not bound by time, will be taken into consideration (e.g., single mothers, immigrant women, domestic workers, etc.)
