Bronze Woman Unveiling Ceremony
The Bronze Woman is many things – she is the first public monument of a black woman in England, a symbol of the contribution of Caribbean, and indeed all, women to society and proof that people who have the courage to pursue their dreams can inspire others to great achievements.


The Bronze Woman Monument was revealed in south London’s Stockwell Memorial Garden on 8th October 2008.

The Bronze Woman monument was based on a poem written by Cecile Nobrega, the President and Founder of the Bronze Woman Monument Project which was established on 1st December 1995.

Cecile was born in Guyana and came to London in 1968. Her poem was written to honour all women, especially those of Caribbean descent.
