To commemorate 150th Anniversary of Women receiving degrees at UW-Madison, the Senior Class office has geared their 2019 Senior Class Gift towards supporting women on campus through In Her Honor. Designed by artist Victoria Reed for the 2019 Senior Class, the statue represents female empowerment and influence.
