The Girl Puzzle, Monument to Nellie Bly, NYC

Rendering of The Girl Puzzle monument to Nellie Bly. To be installed in 2020 in NYC on Roosevelt Island.

Although her life and legacy include broad professional experience as a journalist, women’s rights advocate, suffragist, war correspondent during WWI, inventor/patent holder, industrialist, and humanitarian, a common thread for Nellie Bly is that she experienced the plight of those who are marginalized and wrote stories that would move the needle toward equality and progress, especially for women. Highly regarded as America’s first investigative journalist , she carved a path for the Progressive Era. She gave a voice and a face to women who had no visibility or prominence in society.

“I determined then and there that I would try by every means to make my mission of benefit to my suffering sisters.” Bly
