Putting Her Forward

Putting Her Forward

By Neil Thornton + Jack Ratcliffe

Do you know how many statues there are of real women - excluding queens - in the UK? 25. That's less than 3% of the total statue population. 

Or at least, there were only 25, until artists non zero one doubled that number as part of their Put Her Forward project. We talk to Cat Harrison about the project, why making statues of women is important, and how they choose the 25 living women to be immortalised in sandstone.

Jack also tries to convince both Neil and Cat there's more to seaweed then just that gross slimey feeling you get when you wade in ocean.
