Remember you are not alone - domestic abuse can happen to anyone no matter your age, race, class, culture, disability, gender, sexuality or lifestyle.

Join us for the latest in a series of talks by some of this year's Strong Manchester Women at The Pankhurst Centre,

Each year Manchester City Council celebrates International Women’s Day with their Strong Manchester Women campaign. The campaign recognises the achievements of some of Manchester’s women, and produces portraits which appear on billboards and posters across the city.

We're thrilled that some of these amazing women will be coming to the centre to discuss their work and their experience of the campaign. And they'll be talking against the backdrop of the original portraits, which are here on display at The Pankhurst Centre until June 2019.
