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

A project to collect and curate Manchester’s #Vote100 activity. Centenary City exhibition closes 10th March!

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

Getting more women into positions of power!

A literary project celebrating real life stories  built around experiences of living, working and growing in Manchester. 

Manchester Centenary City

2018 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 until 10th March 2019. 

Youth Engagement

Rise Voice Vote is a youth engagement project which connects young people from 12-19 year old 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 a campaign hack day.

Coaching focuses on developing individuals’ skills and confidence, providing people with feedback on their strengths and weaknesses. Personal issues may be discussed, but the emphasis is on performance at work. 

Let’s get more women into positions of power!


The women of Manchester have always had compelling and thought-provoking stories to tell. The Women’s Words Manchester project bridges the worlds of those who fought to be heart over 100 years ago and the lives of women today who we want to use their voice to tell and share their stories

“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
