Manchester Women Making History!
Are you a young woman aged 18-30? Do you want to make history? Then this programme is for you.
You will learn about women in democracy, equality rights, the history of the suffragette movement and women's right to vote, inspirational women campaigners, working class women in parliament and Manchester’s suffragette story.
You will participate in debates, work with other participants to develop a speech, and learn to plan and execute a campaign. We will also hold an event during parliament week which will give you the opportunity to pose questions to female politicians and community leaders about their experiences of democracy.
We anticipate this will be a popular programme and we have a limited number of spaces. Filling in this form does not guarantee your place; we will contact you in due course.

It's Scams Awareness Month!
This month we are campaigning to raise awareness of scams: how to spot, avoid and report them. We are running a number of training sessions which include a Q and A with Trading Standards and we will be campaigning in the community across Manchester. You can book on a training session here.
