A Statue for Elsie in Edinburgh

March 4, 2018


Here are some of the team from Mercat Tours who are campaigning for a statue to Elsie Inglis, a renowned suffragette and Founder of the Scottish Women's Hospitals. Go to http://ow.ly/NufH30iviyK and follow the links to see a short video describing her impressive achievements, made despite the patronising patriarchal attitiude that told her  " My good lady, go home and sit down" when she offered her services as a qualified doctor to the forces in Edinburgh. Needless to say, this did not stop her.
