Mary Clarke Campaign Moves On

May 19, 2019

"Her they must not mourne in silence. They must take the torch from her and light the darkness of craft and cruelty" 

These were Isabella Mc Keown's words at Mary Clarke's memorial service in Brighton and they are being heeded and acted upon today.   The campaign for a statue to the Suffragette Mary has cross-party support from both Brighton's Green MP Caroline Lucas, and Labour MP Peter Kyle and Maria Caulfield the Conservative MP for Lewes.

Here Caroline Lucas spoke in support of the campaign whilst unveiling a blue plaque to the site of the WSPU's Brighton headquarters, where Suffragette campaigns were organised. The appeal for a statue to this brave woman, the first to die for the cause of women's suggrage, now has a local giving site where donations can be accepted.
