First woman in Parliament to be remembered in bronze

The first statue of the first woman in Parliament has been crafted at a factory in Limehouse before it gets erected in the constituency which she served.

Nancy Astor was the first female MP to take a seat in Westminster in 1919 as the representative for Plymouth Sutton.

A century on, the bronze Nancy is a result of a £125,000 crowdfunding project.
