Changing the Future for Women in Greater Manchester

Greater Manchesters New Coalition

Led by Helen Pankhurst, we are a coalition of change-makers committed to seeing a better future for the women of Manchester. 

As a region that has always led the way and flown the flag for women’s rights, our first initiative, the Pankhurst-Fawcett Scorecard will once again see Greater Manchester leading the charge to bring progress and accountability for women’s rights.

​Pankhurst-Fawcett Scorecard

Our scorecard is named after Emmeline Pankhurst and Millicent Fawcett, two iconic figures who were among the first leaders of the campaign for women’s suffrage.

The scorecard will be used to conduct annual reviews of gender equality data with the goal of achieving equality across all areas by 2028 - the centenary of equal franchise.

Areas of Focus

  • Education

  • ​Safety

  • Culture

  • Participation

  • Employment

''One hundred years on, women in Greater Manchester still face significant inequalities, yet the region is proud of its progressive and feminist history. This pride can be turned into concerted action and, with this in mind, the group backing this project will champion the important discussions needed around education, work, safety, participation and culture.

We are calling on organisations, institutions and the community of Greater Manchester to support and become involved. The 2018 indicators show that our message is still the same – we need Deeds not Words''
