Historic England Protests for Mrs Pankhurst

Aug. 30, 2018

Historic England have described the attempt to move the Statue of Mrs Pankhurst from her site near Parliament as "arbitrary " and have objected to the move suggested by the Pankhurst Trust. They criticise the proposed new site for this listed statue as having 'limited public benefit' due to its "private nature". In effect, the move would steal this relatively rare statue of a women, honoured for her contribution to the cause of universal suffrage, from the public view. It would hide her away - render her virtually invisible.
