Thursday 7 March
It’s Manchester, 3 April 1913 and three ordinary Edwardian women turn vigilante, surprising guards at Manchester Art Gallery, smashing the glass of 14 masterpieces and causing a commotion in the fight for universal suffrage. One hundred years later Wonder Women: Radical Manchester re-examines that shock moment. A milestone on the way to 2018 and the centenary of the first Act of Parliament for women, it is a distinctive Manchester voice questioning the power of women today. Join in and be heard. There's more details about Wonder Women events at Manchester Art Gallery and across the city during March at Creative Tourist.
