In November 2009, artist Charlotte Newson announced she would be putting together a portrait of leading British women's rights activist and suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst to celebrate both women in Manchester and International Women's Day.
Her aim was to build the portrait from photos sent in by the public, making the finished picture, entitled Women Like You, a collage of the inspirational women of today.
Some chose to nominate famous names, such as Olympic swimmer Rebecca Adlington, author Maya Angelou and comedienne Dawn French.
Others made their submissions more personal, nominating women in their lives that have inspired them.
Nicky Heneghan nominated her step-daughter, Ginnie; Kathleen Painter, her aunt, Bertha Broe; Alys Bunce, her sister Anwen.
Louise Bunting sent a photo of her mother Dorothy and grandmother Molly, "two of the most intelligent women I have ever met, who devoted their lives to the loving care of their husbands and family with no regret for lost opportunity."
Beau Sharman nominated her mother Ann "for her lifelong interest in others, her 'can do' attitude and her calm approach", and described her as "a true inspiration to us and to all who meet her."
Taniya Keoghan's inspirational women are her mother, Daphne, and her daughter - the former served in the Air Transport Auxilliary in WW2 and the latter was a helicopter pilot in the Army Air Corps, serving in Iraq.
It wasn't just women who submitted pictures to the project - Steve Marsden, for example, nominated his daughter Laura, who he says is "compasionate and strong even in very difficult times".
One of the most apt submission to the project came from Sylvia Grainger Wright. She sent in a picture of her grandmother Winifred Fletcher, who "was 21 in 1928 and one of the first women eligible to vote at that age."
Alison Krohn's nomination was equally appropriate, as she sent in a picture of her grandfather's aunt, Melita Seyd, who she says was a suffragist.
The finished portrait is on display at Manchester Art Gallery from Saturday 6 March to Sunday 9 May. International Women's Day is on Monday 8 March.
