The Council and democracy International Women's Day 2020

Manchester's annual International Women's Day event is back!

In its third year, we're building on the goodwill and support of Manchester's women; once again celebrating with a walk through the city to mark International Women's Day.
The Walk for Women event is totally free and anyone can take part. You don't have to be a woman; just a supporter of women!

You are invited to come along and meet on Victoria Street, outside Manchester Cathedral on Saturday 7 March 2020 at 12 noon. At 12.30pm, we'll walk together to St Peter’s Square, while making sure all of Manchester hears our roar.

We want to make a glorious noise all around the city centre so bring along fun, safe and noisy instruments to bang and clang, or make the most of your own voice and join in with our women-led chants and singing!

The final destination will be St Peter's Square, from where we'll make our way to Central Library for an end-of-walk event marketplace and networking, from 1.30pm. There you can enjoy community-led performances and a range of activities for all, plus find out more about health, employment, education, services and opportunities for Manchester women and girls. It's also a great opportunity to just relax, enjoy the event and catch up with friends.
