Of the 150 statues of humans around New York City, 145 are tributes to men, including 10 of generals, five of Christopher Columbus, and another five of George Washington.

How many honor women throughout history? Just five.

To raise awareness of the disparity and to promote Season 3 of The Handmaid’s Tale, Hulu and Courageous—CNN’s branded content studio—are fixing the gap. At least for one day.

On Friday in Manhattan’s Madison Square Park, Courageous and Hulu will install 140 mirrored statues to close the gap and show how much women have been ignored for the city’s historic landmarks.
