International Women’s Day Events in Manchester 3-13 March 2016

Wonder Women
This feminist festival is running a huge programme of events from 3-13 March, including discussions, performances and workshops. They’ll be in the Manchester Museum’s new venue The Study for lightning talks, and an event there about animal mummification. They also have an exhibit of crocheted female scientists, in the Manchester Town Hall, which we’ll be visiting as part of our tour (see earlier post http://bcswomen.bcs.org/events/manchester-girl-geeks-walking-tour-featuring-manchesters-scientific-women/).

Manchester women’s Meet-up
Manchester women’s Meet-up is a one-day event for Manchester Women, organised by Manchester City Council. There’ll be discussion and networking, keynotes and debates, lunch and a drinks reception afterwards.

#pledgeMCR
Since the global theme for International Women’s Day is Pledge For Parity, #pledgeMCR have a collection of local speakers on Tuesday 8th March, discussing how they can each make a difference to women’s equality in 2016.

You should be able to go to this and still join us for our monthly social at Slice afterwards, which is just round the corner – we’ll be there slightly later than usual to welcome anyone coming from this.
