PINK and Nicole Kidman Will Join the 10 Inspirational Women Nominated to Become Statues that will Balance Gender Representation in Public Art Forever

NEW YORK - March 8, 2019 - Rezul -- his International Women's Day, a global equality project will begin. Internationally renowned artists and equality activists Gillie and Marc will aim to balance worldwide gender representation through their Statues for Equality public art project. In New York City, less than 3% of statues are female, with Sydney and London following suit with 4% and 3% respectively. In fact, there are more statues called John in the UK than there are of historical women.

Gillie and Marc (the husband-and-wife artists who are passionate equal rights activists) are on a mission to even out these statistics, starting by creating 10 larger than life statues of inspirational women which will be unveiled at RXR Realty's 1285 Avenue of the Americas, NYC in August. These powerful women were voted for by the public and include; Cate Blanchett, Gabby Douglas, Tracy Dyson, Jane Goodall, Nicole Kidman, Janet Mock, PINK, Cheryl Strayed, Tererai Trent, and Oprah Winfrey.

The New York City project is just the start of Statues for Equality and the initiative is now worldwide, with projects in many different countries, including Australia, the UK and the US. Gillie and Marc are keen that the sculptures are representative of all women and know that the public are the best people to ensure this happens! They are asking the public to again nominate the next women that they think deserve the recognition of being immortalized in bronze!

"We hope that as the project expands, it will include a broader diversity of race, class, ability, sexual orientation and gender expression." Says Gillie.

This International Women's Day, Gillie and Marc will be asking 'Where are the women?' and imploring the public to make and recognize history by nominating a woman who inspires them. Please join the conversation at #StatuesforEquality.
