Brilliant campaigning by the womanchesterstatue.orgfor a statue to honour Mrs Pankhurst has been ongoing for years and in 2016 finally reached its goal and her statue is due to be up by 2019.

She will be the first woman to be honoured in a statue in Manchester for 100 years. The last woman being, unsurprisingy, the ubiquitous Queen Victoria.

Today’s campaigners in Manchester have been resourceful and determined. Thankfully they have not been driven to the lengths required by Pankhurst and the women of the suffrage movement to make their voices heard.
