Who gets immortalised, how, and why?

In the UK there are more statues of men called John than there are of women (if you discount those of female royals). Take a look at who gets immortalised, how, and why, as Emily Gee of Historic England leads an evening of discussion asking why stories of female achievements haven’t been told in bricks, mortar, bronze and marble until recently - be that in the descriptions of listed buildings, recognition of female architects, or real women represented in statues - drawing links to the British Library's own building and archives.
