The portrait, which was also displayed on poster sites across the city, was the first public artwork in Manchester commemorating this remarkable woman and her pivotal role in our history. Images were supplied by woman from across the world.
Charlotte spoke about the artwork and made an appeal for photographs on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour programme. Listen to Charlotte’s interview on the BBC Radio 4 website.
