Propertytheoretic statement
The subgroup property of being normal satisfies the subgroup metaproperty called the inverse image condition: the inverse image of a normal subgroup, under a homomorphism, is normal.

Proof
Given: , a homomorphism of groups, and is a normal subgroup of
To prove: is normal in
Proof: Pick and . We need to show that .
By the fact that is a homomorphism:
Since , , and since is normal in , the right side of the above equation is in . Hence, , so , as required.
