Monumental Welsh Women
Monumental Welsh Women is a not for profit organisation dedicated to recognising the contribution of women to the history and life of Wales. Until September 2021, there were no statues of real Welsh women in Wales -not one! We are working to change this. Our mission is to erect 5 statues honouring 5 Welsh women in 5 different location s around Wales in 5 years. It's a huge challenge. So far, we have commissioned and unveiled two statues - of Betty Campbell in Cardiff and Elaine Morgan in Mountain Ash. We have three more in the pipeline.
