Sarah Storey with her inspirational grandmother
Is there a woman who has been an inspiration to you? Your photos are needed to create a tribute to Manchester-born suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst.
Plans are under way in Manchester to create a new portrait of the female rights campaigner whose battles through the early 20th Century helped to secure equal voting rights for women.
Artist Charlotte Newson is now asking for people across Greater Manchester to submit their photos of women so she can create a collage portrait of Emmeline Pankhurst.
The portrait, which will be made up of 2,000 images, will hang in Manchester Art Gallery to mark Independent Women's Day (8 March 2010).
Submit a photo
We all know women who have been important to us - mothers, grandmothers, teachers, coaches, or celebrities past or present.
For instance, Manchester's Paralympic gold-medal winning cyclist Sarah Storey brought in a photo of her grandmother Joan Dean Bailey.
To submit your photo:
- upload it to a special
page - just type 'Women Like You' in the search box.
- drop it off at the Pankhurst Centre, 60-62 Nelson Street M13 or at Manchester Art Gallery and Manchester Central Library between 1 November and 24 December where special boxes are available to place them.
NB. It will not be possible to return photographs.
