So our friend lady liberty here is supposed to represent freedom and liberty for all. We placed it in the harbor so immigrants could see her face and be filled with the thought of endless possibilities. When I was touring Liberty Island I learned that when they had a little celebratory party after her completion it was a gentlemen only event. Hold up what? That’s right women were not allowed to attend. However they handled it as any women would do with grace and appropriate behavior. What is deemed “appropriate” in this situation one might ask. Circling the island in boats and causing a scene.
