  • This statue is a memorial to Emmeline Pankhurst, the suffragette and women's rights political leader. The bronze relief sculpture were later additions in memory for her daughter Christabel Pankhurst, herself a suffragette. The statue shows Pankhurst in middle age, but standing tall and proud with a kindly motherly look on face as she stretches out her right hand as if addressing an audience. We as the audience should listen and heed her words for equality.
  • Women's rights activist with monument right next to House of Lord's. Great line from Mary Poppins musical about Mrs Pankhurst!
