NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — A new sculpture planned for the state capitol complex will celebrate the role Tennessee women played in passing the 19th Amendment.

In 1920, Tennessee became the 36th and final state needed to ratify the amendment that gave women the vote.

The Tennessean reports the sculpture depicts five women who played critical roles in that struggle. Four are from Tennessee and the fifth is a national leader who came to Tennessee to rally support for ratification.
