Congratulations to Gillian Wearing who has been selected as the first woman to create a statue for Parliament Square in London with her monument to suffragist Millicent Fawcett. The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, announced that Wearing had been chosen for what will be a “milestone project” to get a woman represented in the UK’s most important public space for recognising past national achievements. Fawcett led the constitutional campaign for women's suffrage between 1866 and 1928.
The campaign for the sculpture was launched in May 2016 by activist Caroline Criaso-Perez with a petition signed by almost 85,000 people. Criaso-Perez said: "it was also time to have our first statue by a female sculptor in Parliament Square and I am thrilled Gillian Wearing is going to be producing this historic artwork." Gillian was chosen by a committee which included gallery directors, curators, cultural leaders and campaigners and was chaired by London’s deputy mayor for culture and creative industries, Justine Simons.
The statue will be unveiled in 2018 to coincide with wider centenary celebrations of women’s suffrage. Khan went on to say: "This will be an historic moment for Parliament Square, and it’s fitting that the statue will be created by a world-class artist of Gillian’s calibre."
