About Some Women

Some Women is the Pankhurst Centre‘s engagement programme, which includes: 

A project to collect and curate Manchester’s #Vote100 activity. Centenary City exhibition launches 21st November 2018! 

This youth engagement project connects Manchester’s woman-led activism of past and present with local young people.

 A coaching programme for mid-career women.

Manchester Centenary City

This year marks 100 years since (some) women were given the right to vote. As part of the centenary, an exciting series of events, exhibitions, performances, workshops, discussions and debates have been organised by people across Manchester. 

Centenary City is creating an  archive of this activity for the feminists of the future! An exhibition, co-curated by volunteer Ambassadors, will be on at the Pankhurst Centre from November 2018

Youth Engagement

Rise, Voice, Vote is a youth engagement project which connects young people from 12-19 year olds with the history of suffrage and with contemporary campaigns in their local areas, as well as providing them with the resources and tools to mount their own campaigns and make their voices heard.

The programme includes a visit to the Pankhurst Centre, an in-school workshop, the co-development of a  toolkit and on-line resources, and  ‘hack day’.

“We are delighted that the Pankhurst Centre’s vision of how the milestone of 2018 is marked will be supported by the Government’s Centenary Cities programme. Women’s roles in history have been underrepresented, and 2018 is giving us the opportunity to help us address this.”

Gail Heath, Chief Executive for the Pankhurst Trust
