'The Whole Story Project' Immortalizes Famous Historical Women

— May 4, 2017 — Pop Culture
The 'Whole Story Project' is an augmented virtual reality app which aims to end the gender divide in major cities by creating virtual statues of women who have changed the world. After noticing that only 7.5% of the 5193 statues scattered throughout New York city depict women, communications firm Y&R sought to use virtual reality to empower women and girls by amending this lack of representation.

With the help of GPS, and augmented reality, the app -- which compares itself to Pokemon GO -- will allow users to discover virtual statues of real historical women through their smartphone cameras.

The app, though virtual, aims to make waves in the physical world by drawing attention to the 'Monumental Women Campaign,' currently fighting to erect statues of Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Susan B. Anthony in New York City. Anyone can upload designs of statues, allowing the audience to reclaim the historical narrative of major cities which currently lacks female representation.
