FIVE WELSH WOMEN • FIVE STATUES • FIVE YEARS
As Marian Wright Edelman said, ‘You can’t be what you can’t see’.
In Wales, there is not one single public statue commemorating the achievements of real Welsh Women. Welsh girls can’t see what they could be. We aim to change this.
In her recent book, Invisible Women, Caroline Criado Perez said, ‘I wasn’t being shown women I could look up to …I wasn’t being taught about female politicians, female activists, female writers, artists, lawyers, CEOs. All the people I was taught to admire were men, and so in my head power, influence and ambition equated with maleness.’
Our Mission is to normalise female ambition and success by celebrating and commemorating the achievements of great Welsh Women and inspiring the next generation of great Welsh women.
5 statues - 5 Women - 5 years.
