Jan Morris CBE FRSL (2 October 1926 – 20 November 2020) was a Welsh historian, author and travel writer. She was known particularly for the Pax Britannica trilogy (1968–1978), a history of the British Empire, and for portraits of cities, including Oxford, Venice, Trieste, Hong Kong, and New York City. 

She is a pioneer in Wales as a writer and as an Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender figure in Welsh public life. We, the undersigned, call for Cardiff Council to commission and install a statue of Jan Morris in the Hall of Heroes at City Hall, Cardiff working in conjunction with the wider community. We believe that Jan is a modern hero of Wales, and deserves to be recognised as such for her contribution to Welsh public life.
