This photograph captures two defining characters from American history set along side one another in the Rotunda of the Capitol building in Washington DC.

The marble statue is of Lucretia Mott (1793-1880), Quaker reformer and preacher, who worked for abolition, peace, and equality for women in jobs and education. She organized the 1848 Seneca Falls, New York, convention, which launched the women's rights movement.

Her statue is set against a famous painting that depicts the scene, on December 23, 1783, in the Maryland State House in Annapolis when George Washington resigned his commission as commander-in-chief of the Continental Army. The action was significant for establishing civilian authority over the military, a fundamental principle of American democracy.

The distaff side - quiet, calm, focused. This is superb, it uses technique to say something important.

two defining principles that show civilization is in progress, though it is a tough and hard way.
