Emmeline Pankhurst was the leader of the Suffragette Movement, born in Moss Side in 1858. The statue surmounts a chair, depicting her addressing a mass demonstration. It is orientated towards the former Free Trade Hall, where the first Suffragette meetings took place. It is set at the centre of a 5.2 metre-diameter ‘Meeting Circle’, also designed by Hazel Reeves, that was unveiled in July 2018.
