Campaigns Overview

Our overarching campaign is to get one or more memorials to the Matchgirls in the East End of London, in particular, a statue. Other memorials being pursued include murals, mosaics, street naming and education trails. 

Other active campaigns currently underway are:

  • Saving Sarah Chapman's Grave a

  • The quest to get the Matchgirls Strike and Union Committee members' names read out in Parliament on International Women's Day in both the House of Commons and the House of Lords, EVERY year. See the 2020 presence of the Matchgirls in our Awareness Ribbons gallery

  • Raising awareness in Southampton of its connection with the Matchgirls via Kate Sclater

Another recent campaign was to raise awareness of the Matchgirls Strike in Northampton as there are a number of connections worth noting.
