Our Mission

EVE will work to change the culture and face of America one symbol at a time. We will:

  • encourage state legislatures to add more statues of women to National Statuary Hall;
  • suggest women for the U.S. Postal Service to commemorate on stamps;
  • propose that municipalities name streets and buildings after prominent female citizens, and persuade school systems nationwide to increase the number of schools named after women;
  • encourage the government and private sector to include women in the celebrations of our nation’s heritage;
  • analyze the gender ratio of monuments and memorials on the local, state, and national level, and encourage greater representation of women;
  • advocate the full and fair treatment of women and women’s history in our nation’s museums;
  • urge our government to include more women’s images on our coinage and to print a second set of paper money featuring images of great American women; and
  • educate the private sector regarding the lack of female images in media representations.
