Leicester Civic Society

Campaign: Erect a statue to Alice Hawkins, Suffragette

"Born in 1863, Alice lived most of her life in Leicester. A  mother of six and shoe machinist by trade, Alice was determined to have an equal say in the democracy of the day and was imprisoned five times in all in her struggle."  http://www.alicesuffragette.co.uk/

She is still remembered by her granddaughters. "Their abiding memory is of Alice saying to them:
‘You must use your vote, we suffered for it’. 

Councillor Adam Clarke wants to see a memorial put up in Leicester Market Place to the campaigner. Leicester Civic Society supports his campaign and urges every Leicester Civic Society website visitor to pledge their support to get a statue erected.
