Tracy Satchwill's Magna Carta Women at Spotlight exhibition

Tracy Satchwill's Magna Carta Women at Spotlight exhibition

Magna Carta Women will be touring England this year and is funded by the Arts Council and Royal Holloway University.

The 4-piece collage looks at key women and men who have had an impact on British women and their journey over the 800 years towards individual rights and freedoms. The collage is inspired by stained glass windows, the main visual art form of the Magna Carta era and features Mary Wollstonecraft, Emily Pankhurst, Catherine of Aragon, Janet Horne (last woman in the British Isles to be executed for witchcraft), Barbara Castle and Laura Bates (founder of the Everyday Sexism Project). There are also a few men included, such as John Stuart Mill, George Lansbury and Laurence Housman, who all championed women's rights. King John will be featured signing the Magna Carta, which forms the pathway.
