Mary Clarke was the first to give her life for women’s right to vote. A committed suffragette, she was also instrumental in setting up the Brighton and Hove branch of the Women’s Social and Political Union. So unlike her Pankhurst relations, why do we know so little about her?
The Mary Clarke Statue Appeal was set up in late 2018 and plans to erect a bronze statue of Mary close to the Brighton Museum entrance on the Royal Pavilion Estate in the heart of the City. Jean Calder, Chair of Trustees for the Appeal, will talk about Mary and the campaign to commemorate her.
