Mercy Ashworth Portrait Unveiling

The event has ended.
17:30 - 20:00
Ashworth Centre

Please join us to celebrate the unveiling of our latest portrait, an artwork of Mercy Ashworth, one of the first women members of Lincoln’s Inn to be Called to the Bar. This important piece, made up of photos of our members who identify as women, will now be hung in the building that was named after her, the Ashworth Centre.

For this project, we collaborated with Spark21, a charity that was founded to celebrate, inform and inspire future generations of women in law through multi-media processes that include exhibitions and photo mosaics. The charity’s founder, Dana Denis-Smith, will deliver a speech on the night about the artwork and the next chapter of their project, Next 100 Years. Karen Shuman, Chief Chancery Master, will also speak at this important event as Chair of our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Committee.

There will be a drinks reception following the speeches and unveiling, and another opportunity to see an exhibition that highlights the great strides that have been achieved in the legal profession through the stories of some of the most ground-breaking and influential women members of the Inn.
