In 2018 the San Francisco Board of Supervisors approved the Women’s Recognition Public Art Fund – an ordinance requiring 30% of all public art in the City to represent women – with the goal of 50%. At the time of passing the ordinance, of the 87 statues in San Francisco only three depicted non-fictional women. As part of this effort to expand the presence of influential women through permanent art pieces, the first statue approved for the steps for the San Francisco Main Library will depict poet and civil rights activist Dr. Maya Angelou.
