The 2022 Pankhurst-Fawcett Scorecard – released on 6th February 2023
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''
This is a call to action for GMCA and the Mayor of Greater Manchester to work with organisations across the region and make Greater Manchester the best place in the country to be a woman. Some of these statistics are shocking and we need to see commitments to take action and collect the data. We are glad to be part of this coalition and will campaign to see that happen.”
"It’s important that we, in Greater Manchester, look at the situation for all women - including BAME women and women marginalised due to faith, sexuality and other differences. From the exercise so far it is clear that we need better data to track not just the experiences of all women, but also that we have disaggregated data that helps us understand intersectionality and address specific vulnerabilities. Moreover, this exercise also illustrates the necessity in tracking women and especially BAME women in the legal profession and senior decision-making process.”
