“At Citizens Advice Manchester we are currently planning a Manchester women making history project. The programme is designed to empower women (aged 18-30) to engage in democratic process”, writes Vicky.

“Participants will learn about women in democracy, equality rights, the history of the suffragette movement and women’s right to vote, inspirational women campaigners, working class women in parliament and Manchester’s suffragette story”.

“They will participate in debates, work with other participants to develop a speech, and learn to plan and execute a campaign. We will also hold an event during parliament week which will give them the opportunity to pose question to female politicians and community leaders about their experiences of democracy”.

“We are reaching out to women that may benefit from the programme”.
