Strength and Glory

It might not be the Statue of Liberty and it doesn’t afford you a view over Manhattan, but it does have a staircase inside and you can climb up to its head to get a view over downtown Munich. In Wikipedia it says this bronze sand-cast 19th-century statue, called the Bavaria, is a female personification of the state of Bavaria and stands for its strength and glory. Yes, strength and glory personified by a woman! Traditionally, compliance, nurturance and modesty are typical virtues attributed to women.
