600 years before the #MeToo movement the first lady of Orleans - Jeanne d’Arc - beat the white Anglosaxon men ... and was burnt. The statue, however, shows that female power wins in the end. Go for it, girls!

The statue seemed a little out of place. I was not sure of the reference to the city of New Orleans until I read someone else's review. There should be an inscription describing it's reference to the city. The area is a must see area...More

A grand statue that glimmers in the sun. Surrounded by trees as though she is riding out of a forest. Excellent addition to the quarter for its historic significance and for breaking the monotony of old dead white men in local art.

This is a nice statue down by the Frenchman market; however, it’s very difficult to get to to view let alone take a picture. We saw a better view of it when we were doing a bus tour.
