Votes for women! Vote for Mary!

Friends, a request: please vote for the Mary on the Green project, to get a statue to Mary Wollstonecraft on Newington Green. If you haven't already done so, please visit, register, and vote for us. It is free, will only take a couple of minutes, and could net the project £6000. This will pay for several abseiling lesbians slices of whiskey cake.

It has been a good Wollstonecraft week:
  • an interview with another local journalist, in Mary's pew, no less (awaiting publication); 
  • a recce to Parliament, with Mary on the Green collaborators; 
  • a surprise seminar (the convenor said, "You were in the Islington Tribune!"); 
  • mutual-admiration-society coffee with the StokeyLitFest originator, Liz Vater; 
  • a random friendly photographer; 
  • several books (purchased: a solid 1976 edition of the Scandinavian Letters; borrowed: Footsteps: Adventures of a Romantic Biographer; read: Ariel, last perused in deepest adolescence); 
  • too much time on Twitter....
And I also note that the Google Doodle for Friday was of the Disney animator Mary Blair, which I hope augurs well for her namesake.
