Two Statues for Wales

May 8, 2018

Unknown Welsh Woman

This unknown Welsh woman neatly illustrates the many unknown women whose achievements go unrecognised. Happily, the Welsh Government has £300k to mark the Centenary of Women’s Suffrage. Communities across Wales will be able to bid for grants for events to celebrate the achievements of women. In a statement to the National Assembly, Leader of the House, Julie James outlined a programme of activities to celebrate and recognise the achievements of women, that too often are almost invisible in our history. In the Autumn, the public will be able to vote to choose the Welsh women who they believe have been most inspirational. Two statues will be commissioned as a result of this project.
