Reason behind lack of female statues

A survey has suggested that 85% of statues in the UK are of men.

In Cardiff, there is a statue of Boudica at City Hall and there is one of a mother and son on Queen Street.

Terry Breverton is a historian and author of more than 20 books including "100 Great Welsh Women" told BBC Wales why so few statues of women exist.
