GM4Women2028 Pankhurst-Fawcett Scorecard: Annual Data Reveal & Celebration

Come and join us on Tuesday 6th February 2024 for our 6th annual reveal & celebration event revealing the latest scorecard data, to see how Greater Manchester is faring for gender equality in the last twelve months. 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 is used within Greater Manchester to conduct annual reviews of gender equality data with the goal of achieving equality across all areas by 2028 – the centenary of equal franchise.

Our mission revolves around fostering connections between women and organisations across Greater Manchester with Dialogue, Data, Deeds, and Determination.  

Funded by the University of Manchester’s School of Social Sciences Community Partnership & Civic Engagement Fund, GM4Women events aim to facilitate meaningful Dialogues, exchange valuable insights on equality Data, and unite communities in our shared Determination to see equality Deeds from our politicians and power holders.
