We all now have an opportunity to vote for a memorial plaque to record Edith Garrud’s memory as a pioneer of jujutsu and a suffragette. Islington Council in London will erect a plaque on one of the houses where she lived if she receives enough votes. Edith is one of ten candidates for a plaque and the top five will be commemorated.
You can vote for Edith online via the Islington People’s Plaques website.
