Event description
A tribute to the women who made and moulded Manchester; from Emmeline Pankhurst to Victoria Wood.

About this event

These formidable women...

* Annie Horniman, who established Britain’s first repertory theatre company.

* Elizabeth Gaskell, who wrote Mary Barton, one of the classic “condition of England” novels in 1848.

* Hannah Mitchell, who challenged Churchill at St John’s School during the Suffragette era.

* Shelagh Delaney who pioneered modernist theatre with her groundbreaking A Taste of Honey.

* Ellen Wilkinson – “Red Ellen” who accompanied the Jarrow miners to London.

* Kathleen Ollerenshaw, who overcame deafness to become Lord Mayor, a leading educationalist, mathematician and advisor to Margaret Thatcher (now what sort of job is that for a Mancunian?!).

* Sylvia Pankhurst, Britain’s greatest political campaigner.

These are just some of the heroic Manchester women we will be celebrating.
