The Runnymede Trust, AnotherWay Now and gal-dem presents on Votes for Who?: Intersectional Suffrage & Struggle.
On the centenary of 1918 Representation of the People Act and in the ‘birthplace’ of the Women’ Suffrage movement in Britain, we will discuss who has been left out of the conversation on Women’s Rights and what campaigners and policymakers are doing to push for equality now in Manchester and the North West.
Speakers will include:
Dr Sumita Mukherjee, Senior Lecturer in History, University of Bristol and author of upcoming book Indian Suffragettes: Female Identities and Transnational Networks
Latoya and Lisa, graduates from the RECLAIM leadership programme, run for young people from working class communities in greater Manchester
Sandhya Sharma, Safety4Sisters North West, Manchester-based women’s organisation that support vulnerable migrant women who cannot access safe accommodation or welfare support and who are experiencing gender-based violence.
