The Perfect 36 Society

Alan LeQuire’s sculpture in Centennial Park includes five women who were involved in Tennessee’s ratification of the 19th Amendment, granting women the right to vote. The figures are Anne Dallas Dudley of Nashville (front right), Frankie Pierce of Nashville (back left), Carrie Chapman Catt (national suffrage leader who came to Tennessee for the final battle – front left), Sue Shelton White of Jackson, (back center) and Abby Crawford Milton of Chattanooga (back right).


The Perfect 36 Society has reached its goal of an exclusive group of women who contributed the seed money to provide support for the design and construction of a life-size sculpture in Nashville commemorating the importance of Tennessee’s pivotal role in granting women the right to vote.
