Lady Godiva is an 1897 painting by English artist John Collier, who worked in the style of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. The portrayal of Lady Godiva and her well-known but apocryphal ride through Coventry, England, is held in Coventry's Herbert Art Gallery and Museum.

Lady Godiva’s famous ride throughout Coventry, England has long been pointed at as one of the first public steps in the Women’s Movement. Though it happened hundreds of years ago, Lady Godiva’s ride of rebellion has sparked the imagination of people all around the world for generations. Lady Godiva’s actions are inspirational not just to women, as she also stands as a symbol of the fight against oppression and the willingness to suffer great discomfort in the service of others.
