"Every woman who wants to make an impact on the way this country is run — from the House of Commons to the pub quiz — has Mary Wollstonecraft to thank." -Mary Beard, Cambridge Professor of Classics
Mary Wollstonecraft (1759-1797), remembered as “the mother of British feminism” and a pioneer in other fields, was a remarkable Londoner and international citizen who deserves a proper memorial. Newington Green, in London, where she lived as a young woman and began to see the injustices of the world through political eyes, is the obvious place. Newington Green Action Group, a neighbourhood association and registered charity with a substantial track record, proposes to raise a statue in her honour.
