March 22, 2017
Another big organization is putting its weight behind the movement for gender equality in civic statues.
This Women’s History Month, Historic England is talking about the representation and commemoration of women throughout history
They estimate that a mere 2.7% of statues in the UK are of historical, non-royal women – and note that there are now a number of campaigns are looking to change that.
They are inviting your suggestions (as is inVISIBLEwomen on our “Waiting List“ page) for women who should be honoured.
