Sadiq Khan’s response

May 11, 2016 — Dear Petitioner

Thank you for the petition submitted on the website regarding a statue in Parliament Square dedicated to the Suffragettes.

The Mayor has said he will be a proud feminist in City Hall and is committed to breaking down barriers to success for women and full gender equality. He believes that the Suffragette movement was a key milestone towards achieving this goal, which should be commemorated. There are of course certain practical issues to consider, but he is keen to explore a suitable high-profile site for a statue, whether this is in Parliament Square, or another high-profile, appropriate location in central London

Yours sincerely

Public Liaison Officer
City Hall
