Feminist Sylvia Pankhurst’s statue in London


This 2012 video from Britain is called Mark Steel on Sylvia Pankhurst.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Heroine given pride of place

Saturday 20th August 2016

THE Sylvia Pankhurst Memorial Committee joined the Marx Memorial Library (MML) on Thursday to unveil the maquette of Ian Walters’s statue of Sylvia Pankhurst in the library’s reading room.

The memorial committee is currently campaigning to find the full-size statue a permanent home on Clerkenwell Green. Committee member Professor Mary Davis underlined the importance of Ms Pankhurst in feminist and labour movement history.

MML archivist Meirian Jump said that the library was in full support of campaign and hoped that the statue on the Green would underline Clerkenwell’s radical history.

Visitors to the MML can see the maquette in the reading room during opening hours and at twice weekly guided tours Tuesdays and Thursdays at 1pm. More on the campaign can be found at:
