This is Wilhelmina Drucker, a famous Dutch sufragette. She fought for women’s rights and our right to vote. She also thought in 1893 and alas I still agree with her in 2007 that the Voice of Women was not heard and she started her own magazine Evolution to give women a voice.
I am very pleased to see the statue every day and this was a very beautiful evening.
This statue is done in 1939 by Gerrit van der Veen, a sculptor who played a very important role in the Dutch resistance. He was executed by the Nazi’s in 1944.
