Unveiling The Mothers Of Gynecology

Artist and activist Michelle Browder, founder of I Am More Than, a civil rights tour company and social enterprise for local youth, is bringing the country’s first Mothers of Gynecology Monument to Montgomery. The 15-foot tall monument will feature three of 11 enslaved African women: Anarcha, Lucy, and Betsey, who were experimented on without consent or anesthesia by Dr. J. Marion Sims in his office in Montgomery. Today, Sims is widely celebrated as the “Father” of Modern Gynecology and every woman in the world has benefited from the Mothers’s sacrifice.
