THE BRONX - March is Women's History Month, and residents in The Bronx are remembering the dozens of legendary women buried at the Woodlawn Cemetery.

"I think what we need to know as Bronxites is we have a tremendous history, and we have a tremendous legacy at Woodlawn," historian Susan Olsen said.

Dozens of legendary women -- including social activists like Elizabeth Cady Stanton and Carrie Chapman Catt -- have been laid to rest at the 150-year-old National Historic Landmark.

Many women, like artist Anna Hyatt Huntington, have also contributed sculptures and custom monuments to the cemetery.
