National Monument to the Women of World War Two in London, England

Pictures and text by Laura Ann Gallegos

The National Monument to the Women of World War II was sculpted by John W. Mills. It was unveiled by the Queen of England on July 9, 2005. It commemorates the women who took on the hundreds of jobs left by the men because of the war. The women then gave the men their jobs back when they returned from the war. The monument has been criticized by some because it is specifically for women while their does not exist a monument specifically for the men. The monument can be found in Whitehall, London. I took pictures of the monument on September 28, 2008. While there seemed to be some construction around it, they still came out quite nice.
