Marking 100 years since women’s right to vote was granted, the Pankhurst Centre is curating an archive recording how Manchester has commemorated #Vote100. Centenary Cities is a chance to reflect during this milestone year, while preserving a record of women’s achievements in Manchester today. The collection displays banners, leaflets, badges and others items from #Vote100 2018, including Manchester’s only professional female boxer, Stacey Copeland’s shorts, specially made in the suffragette colours. Anyone can be part of this new history by adding a “History Pin” – photos, selfies, audio or film – to a digital map, recording their own centenary moments. The Pankhurst Centre is open Thursdays 10am-4pm and the 2nd and 4th Sunday of each month 1-4pm.
Wed 21 Nov 2018 – Sun 10 Mar 2019, Pankhurst Centre, Manchester, 60-62 Nelson Street, Manchester, M13 9WP. Tel: 0161 273 5673, www.pankhursttrust.org
