Cathy de Monchaux, the Turner Prize-nominated sculptor, has created a new public artwork for Newnham College, the women’s college at the University of Cambridge.

Newnham College was co-founded in 1871 by feminist and suffrage campaigner Millicent Garrett Fawcett, making the then-radical claim that women had an equal right to education as men. Newnham College has built on this foundation of innovation and is today a home of pioneering research alongside world-class teaching.
