Deeds Not Words: A one day conference celebrating women's activism in MCR

Manchester was recently ranked 365/380 in terms of the best places to be a woman in Britain. While stats like this are unacceptable, they raise an opportunty for us to showcase the work that people are doing throughout our city to actively try and change this situation.

Come and join the Women's Equality Party as we host a one day event bringing together people from across Manchester who dedicate their time and energy to creating a more equal society.

Expect talks from inspirational women about the work that they are doing to benefit women and girls in Greater Manchester, sessions in which you can get your hands dirty and make feminist paraphrenalia, a performance from the WAST choir, alongside campaign groups explaining their work and how you can get involved!

Speakers include:

  • Sophie Walker, Leader of the Women's Equality Party
  • Eve Holt, DivaManc, Parliament Project & M4
  • Joeli Brearley, Pregnant Then Screwed
  • Gail Heath, CEO. The Pankhurst Trust (inc. Manchester Women's Aid)
  • WAST, Women asylum seekers together
