This mural by Manchester based artist Amy Coney, depicts 6 local women who made a significant mark on history.  It is part of the Outhouse MCR project and can be found in the centre of Manchester’s Stevenson Square.

They are, from left to right: theatre impresario Annie Horniman; author Elizabeth Gaskell; Enriquetta Rylands, founder of John Rylands Library; Marie Stopes, pioneer in the field of birth control; suffragette Emmeline Pankhurst; and Sunny Lowry,the first British woman to swim the English Channel.

I know that Coney intended to put their names beneath each portrait, but I’m not sure of that ever happened.
