The British frontrunner of feminism may get her statue at last

One painful reminder of the wrongs of history is presented by the statues in the squares of cities around the globe. Judging by thousands and thousands of statues across the world, humans are a species made up almost entirely of males. Of the 11 memorials in Parliament Square, London, for instance, not one is of a woman. Edinburgh in Scotland has two statues of a woman: both Queen Victoria. However, following a campaign by the British Labour party, Nicky Morgan, the Education Secretary and Minister for Women, has signalled that the U.K. government is interested in helping to fund a statue to the “mother of feminism”, Mary Wollstonecraft. “I think women need more statues in prominent places,” Ms Morgan said.
Amen.
