Remembering resistance: a century of women's protest in the North of England

When: March 2 2019

Where: Salford, United Kingdom


<p>An afternoon focussed on a project bringing to life the last 100 years of women&rsquo;s protest, discussing the changing nature of women&rsquo;s activism and some of the more significant protest sites in the North.</p>

<p>From 2-4pm on 2 March we celebrate IWD with a focus on <a href="/External.aspx?u=" target="_blank">Remembering Resistance: a Century of Women&rsquo;s Protest in the North of England</a>, a Heritage Lottery Funded project that aims to catalogue, celebrate, and engage the public in women&#39;s efforts to bring about political change. The project involves a programme of public engagement events and activities, as well as working with volunteer citizen researchers to develop a rich picture of when, where, and why women have fought for change.</p>

<p>There will be talks from project leads Sarah Marsden and Chris Boyko, plus the opportunity to get involved with the project by recalling your own memories of women&rsquo;s campaigning.</p>

<p>Admission free; light refreshments available; all welcome.</p>
