Statue of Sophia Goulden to be built on IOM?

The first images of a proposed statue honouring a Manx feminist hero have been shared on social media.

The Friends of Sophia Goulden organisation is hoping to build the monument on the Island after raising funds to commission it.

The Lonan campaigner was a keen suffragette and took the movement's most famous icon Emmeline Pankhurst to her first meeting.

Sculptor Sean Hedges-Quinn has shown the small-scale model of the proposed statue on Facebook, before it's officially unveiled at a ceremony next year.

You can find a link to the online funding page here.
