Choose Your Mary

May 1, 2018

Mary on the Green campaign has shortlisted two designs -  by Maggie Hambling and Matrtin Jennings - for Mary Wollstonecraft, the ‘foremother of feminism’ statue, and is launching a petition calling for London Mayor’s support.

The campaign’s chair Bee Rowlatt told the Hackney Citizen: “We are trying to get recognition for this extraordinary woman who was actively annihilated from history.

“Mary Wollstonecraft was campaigning for women’s political representation 100 years before the suffragettes. She was also a leading human rights pioneer and the foremother of feminism. Her legacy is gigantic yet most people don’t even know who she is.”
