Mary Marches On

Nov. 30, 2020

 Sculptor Denise Dutton

During her lifetime Mary Clarke overcame multiple obstacles to fight for women's right to vote. She battled an abusive husband, rough manhandling by the police, repeated imprisonment and force feeding but nothing daunted her resolve. Likewise, the the campaign for a statue in her memory in Brighton is also forging on, through all the many difficulties raised by the pandemic. The finished wax of the maquette by Denise Dutton has gone to the foundry and, COVID-permitting, the completed bronze should be ready by early December, in time for the anniversary of Mary’s birth on 12th December and of her death on Christmas Day.
