Event Details

Join the authors and illustrators for the official launch of First in the Fight, which celebrates the stories of Manchester’s radical women.Radical Lates at People's History Museum

Written by Helen Antrobus and Andrew Simcock, and with 20 individual Women in Print illustrations, First in the Fight tells of a city where, from the women who marched to St Peter’s Field flying the flag for reform to the first entrepreneurs, women have stood shoulder to shoulder in the fight for equality and change.

Creatively inspiring both the title and the design of the book’s front cover (by Jane Bowyer) is the Manchester suffragette banner, part of People’s History Museum’s collection.  First in the Fight is published by Manchester’s iNostalgia.

Hear from the authors about these inspiring, trailblazing women and the story of the book itself, which is part of the legacy of Manchester’s Our Emmeline statue.

There will be the opportunity to have your book signed, and books will be available at a special rate in People’s History Museum’s shop for the event.

Suitable for 16+

  • Treat yourself to 10% off in The Left Bank cafe bar and 10% off in the museum shop when you attend an event at PHM
