At the time the Black Lives Matter campaign in the UK was drawing the national spotlight to the statues of slave traders, another activist was highlighting the way women are represented in civic statuary, reported British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC).

“Just look at what you are being socialised to accept as normal…” said the report by Lizzie Enfield, quoting the activist’s placard as saying, focusing on a monument outside the Trafford Centre in Manchester.

It shows a seated man bathing his feet surrounded by a clutch of fawning semi-naked women. Another sign beside a statue in Iowa, US – of a bronze topless woman arching her back and holding her breasts as if to deliberately enhance her cleavage – reads: “Iowa as a mother figure offering nourishment to her children? Yeah,” said the BBC report.
