Erection date: 1970

Inscription

{The Suffragettes badge of a portcullis with an upward pointing arrow, followed by:}
This tribute is erected by the Suffragette Fellowship to commemorate the courage and perseverance of all those men and women who in the long struggle for votes for women selflessly braved derision, opposition and ostracism, many enduring physical violence and suffering.

{and near the bottom:}
Nearby Caxton Hall was historically associated with women's suffrage meetings and deputations to parliament.

{The Suffragettes badge is repeated on the back of the scroll.}

This is made of fibreglass finished in cold cast bronze. Designed by Russell and unveiled by Lenton. As for the inscription, surely on this occasion it could have been ". . . women and men . . . "?
