And here is an image the first statue of a female legislator I can remember seeing — the Pharoah Hatshepsut, in the Metropolitan Museum, abutting Central Park. As the online commentary mentions, “Hatshepsut also wears the false beard and shendyt-kilt that are part of the regalia of a king. Looking at the side of her face it’s possible to see the strap that holds this false beard in place…” Commemorate your triumphs!
