There are only five historical statues of women in the entire city of New York. But that all changed Monday.
An unveiling was held on Avenue of the Americas in the Theater District, revealing ten statues of prominent women.
This is all in honor of Women's Equality Day.

Some of the iconic women include Jane Goodall, Gabby Douglas, Nicole Kidman, and Oprah Winfrey.
