Mary Clarke Statue Appeal

Mary Clarke was the Women’s Social and Political Union Organiser for Brighton from 1909 to 1910 and was the first suffragette to give her life for women’s right to vote. 

The Mary Clarke Statue Appeal aims to raise funds to erect a bronze statue of Mary close to Brighton Museum. The scheme has Council and all-party political support and has charity status. 

The statue of Mary will highlight the importance of equality, women’s rights and democracy – in particular the right of all people to exercise democratic choice without fear of violence.

The Mary Clarke Statue Appeal is a registered charity number 1185845. It is independent of the Brighton & Hove Women’s History Group and The Regency Town House, but is very grateful for their support.
