Wonder Women : Radical Manchester It’s Manchester, April 1913 and three ordinary Edwardian women turn vigilante, surprising guards at Manchestcer Art Gallery, smashing glass and causing a commotion in the fight for universal suffrage. 100 years later Wonder Women: Radical Manchester re-examines that shock moment. A milestone on the way to 2018 and the centenary of the first Act of Parliament for women, it is a distinctive Manchester voice questioning the power of women today.
