“Treated as badly as we are, we all love Pennsylvania … If the men did not look down on us so, it would be simply wonderful.”

That sentiment from “A Co-ed” in 1925 and dozens of other quotations representative of the history of women at Penn have been etched into benches and bricks lining a walkway that crosses the newly christened Hill Square.

Commissioned as part of the 125th Celebration of Women at Penn, the sculpture was created by conceptual artist Jenny Holzer and was dedicated during Homecoming Weekend. Also included was a performance of a musical piece composed for the occasion by Assistant Professor of Music Anna Weesner.
