The Rothenstein Mural was painted in 1916 as a memorial to members of the British universities serving in the Great War and depicts the conferring of a degree on the “unknown soldier”. This poignant mural was donated by the artist’s son and is displayed in the Senate Room in the Highfield Campus at Southampton University.

Emily Dawes is president of the University of Southampton students’ union and in a tweet threatened to paint over the mural because it displays only “white men”.
