Changing the Future for Women in Greater Manchester

We are a charity focused on promoting equality & diversity for the benefit of the community in Greater Manchester.

Led by Helen Pankhurst, we are committed to making Manchester a better place for girls & women, in all their diversity, to live, work and prosper. 

Our main objectives are :

a) eliminating discrimination on the grounds of sex;

b) advancing the education of the public on the grounds of women and girls’ equality; 

c) conducting or commissioning research on women and girls’ equality issues and publishing the results to the public;

d) facilitating dialogue and creating connections to address the diverse interests of women and girls.

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.

''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''
