Part of a unique tribute to Emmeline Pankhurst

Four thousand photographs of inspirational women are needed to create a unique tribute to female rights campaigner Emmeline Pankhurst. Artist Charlotte Newson has been commissioned to create a new portrait which will become the first public artwork of the pioneering suffragette ever to go on show in her home city. The portrait, in the form of a photographic mosaic, will be unveiled at Manchester City Art Gallery on International Women’s Day, March 8th next year. Charlotte Newson joins Jenni to explain how Woman’s Hour listeners can be part of a unique tribute.
