Since the Emmeline Pankhurst statue was unveiled in Manchester in 2018, five more statues of men have joined her.
There are now 22 statues of men across the city - and only two women!
'Adding Emily Williamson to our public realm would be tremendous recognition for this inspirational woman. I fully support the statue campaign."
So says Councillor Bev Craig, the first female Leader of Manchester City Council. A majority of the Council are women.
Bev joined the Lord Mayor of Manchester, Councillor Donna Ludford, to see the statue design.
