Join us for the first 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.
And opening our series of talks is the fantastic Stacey Copeland.
Stacey has represented her country in two sports - football and boxing. Following a successful football career Stacey pursued her childhood dreams in boxing; as an amateur she won three National titles and a European silver medal before turning professional. In July 2018, she fought in Zimbabwe, Africa and became the first ever British female boxer to win the Commonwealth title. Outside of boxing Stacey founded the Pave The Way foundation which aims to challenge gender stereotypes and pave the way for girls and women in sport, she presents a weekly show on BBC Radio Manchester, she is a public speaker and has this year spoken in European Parliament and at the United Nations as well as delivering over 100 talks to schools and businesses, she is also involved in a number of charity and community initiatives.
