Manchester Histories Festival

3 - 12 June 2016

Suffragette City/The Pankhursts

When Britain was at its strongest as an imperial power in the early years of the 20th century half the population - women - still had no say in how the country was run. It was a Manchester family, the Pankhursts, that led the campaign to change that. But it took many years, and many battles, as we explain on this fascinating tour.

This walk is with Jonathan Schofield.
