Mary Branson’s New Dawn is a moving celebration of the vast numbers of ordinary
women and men who worked and struggled for the vote, the bedrock of modern democracy.

On the 150th anniversary of John Stuart Mill’s petition calling for the universal right to
vote, New Dawn is a fitting tribute to the champions for liberty of the past, as well as
an inspiration for future generations.

“The role that women have played in shaping our democracy, throughout the history of Parliament, has long been a subject close to my heart. Honouring the campaign for women’s rights through art, and in particular through such a spectacular work as this, is something I wholeheartedly support. I hope the beauty of New Dawn, and the values it embodies, are appreciated by visitors to Parliament for years to come.”
— Baroness D’Souza, Lord Speaker of the House of Lords
