Homage to Unsung Heroines

One and Other.  Trafalgar Square. London.  August 2009.

Antony Gormley’s project invited people to have one hour on Trafalgar Square’s unoccupied Fourth Plinth.  No statue of a military hero on the 4th plinth for my hour, but a ‘statue’ to honour unsung heroines.  These heroines are the women who bring up children, who run households, who look after elderly parents, who act as the family’s social secretary.
