Leonn Ward Film Celebrates Fawcett Statue
The RSA Films director made the film for Google Arts & Culture as a tribute to the suffrage movement and its legacy
A statue commemorating the life of suffragist campaigner, Millicent Fawcett, has been unveiled opposite Parliament in London.
The statue, created by Turner Prize-winning artist Gillian Wearing, is Parliament Square’s first statue of a woman. It features a banner, held by Fawcett, reading “courage calls to courage everywhere”.
The statue also pays tribute to the wider suffrage movement, with a frieze of 59 portrait tiles of notable campaigners, both men and women, surrounding all four sides of the plinth.
To celebrate, RSA Films director Leonn Ward directed a powerful short film for Google Arts & Culture. ‘On the Road to Equality’ is a rallying cry to act for a better, more equal future for all.
