Jesse Street Gardens, sculpture

This sculpture in Jesse Street Gardens at Circular Quay was installed to celebrate Australia's Bicentennary in 1988. It was commissioned by the Women's Pioneer Society of Australasia in recognition of the courage and endurance of Women Pioneers and their vital role in the development of Australia. Today is International Women's Day which celebrates the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.
