Do women really need monuments?

"Paper Women began from the simple realisation of the absence of statues of women in Bristol and a desire to challenge this."

But I wonder, do women really need monuments? I cannot but think of bell hooks and her argument that if emancipation is about wanting to be like those who by being where they are oppressed a large number of people (not just women, but other minoritoes), aren't we perpetuating the oppressive system instead of challenging it?

Still I can't help noticing the strategy of this group: pink paper dolls. I think it is a lovely tribute to women, and maybe it does not need to be cast in bronze.
