We are a group of individuals passionate about seeing change be realised for the women of Manchester. 
We are seeing more and more individuals pledging their support to our campaign daily.
Over the coming months our strategy for the next 10 years will start to take shape. This will be influenced by the voices, energy, passion and commitment created by the volunteers, pledgers and advocates that work alongside us.

‘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 desegregated 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.
