Wanted: Names of inspirational West Leeds women

Do you know which West Leeds women have been an inspiration to others or an asset to their communities?

Perhaps former Intake student Mel B might make the grade? Or Armley novelist Barbara Taylor Bradford? Perhaps Kirkstall Road composer Angela Morley or Kirkstall Forge founder Betty Beecroft?

A new public sculpture will be installed in Leeds City Centre in 2020 designed by artist Pippa Hale, who was responsible for the sculpture unveiled last year at the Belgrave Retail Park in Stanningley.

The sculpture will feature the names of over 200 women from the Leeds area, past and present, who have been or are successful in business, sport or entertainment, as well as unsung heroes such as doctors, teachers and volunteers.

If you know a woman who has been an asset to their local community, submit her name here.

The deadline for submissions is the 30th November 2019, and over 200 names will be added.
