We are thrilled to announce the amazing Caroline Roberts-Cherry as new Chair of the Pankhurst Trust.

Her vast experience, energy and brilliance will ensure that the ambitious vision of the Pankhurst Trust is carried forward and that the incredible work of our outgoing Chair Louise Sutherland is continued.

“I’m inspired to come from a city that is proud of its radical history and has a legacy of strong women. The Pankhurst Centre is at the heart of this and gives us a very real opportunity to use this to encourage the changemakers of the future and to aim to achieve the equality for women and girls that I believe makes society a better place for everyone.” – Caroline Roberts-Cherry

Happy International Women’s Day! 💚💜

International Women’s Day began at the beginning of the 20th century as the call for votes for women grew louder. Since then, people across the globe have gathered to raise awareness of the need for women’s equality. We are proud to be part of this community.

This is the first IWD since the Pankhurst Centre opened to visitors, after supporters saved it from destruction in the 1980s, that we have not been able to celebrate together.

We’ve been looking back at photos of our events over the years and are sharing some favourites here. We’d love to see yours too!

Good CRM Members

Like many heritage and cultural venues, we've taken a big hit this year. Being unable to open has meant lost donations, shop sales, and other revenue, with the upshot that our earned income is down over 70%. If you'd like to help, and still have some gifts to buy, why not consider gifting a Friends membership, from just £3 per month? Becoming a Friend is one of the best ways of supporting us as we recover from this year and look forward to building a brighter future! #pankhurstpresents

We cannot achieve all that we do without the generous support of people like you. By becoming a Friend of The Pankhurst Centre you can be part of the incredible story of the women who won the vote, and give hope to all those working towards gender equality and social justice today.

Our Story

60-62 Nelson Street, Manchester was the birthplace of the suffragette movement, and now houses a small museum, heritage centre and women’s service. 62 Nelson Street was the home of Emmeline Pankhurst and her family; it was in the parlour of this house that the Women’s Social and Political Union - the campaign for Votes for Women that became known as the suffragettes - began. The museum and heritage centre is open to the public on Thursdays from 10am-4pm, and on the second and fourth Sunday of the month, from 1-4pm. We think everyone should have access to this important place, so work hard to ensure entry remains free.

The Pankhurst Centre is the headquarters of Manchester Women’s Aid, which provides advice and support to those experiencing domestic violence and abuse. The Centre also provides space for other services, activities and events run by women; we host a number of women’s organisations and projects that support women, and continue to fight for women’s rights today, as the suffragettes did all those years ago.

My own people, hence Muslims, have to ostracise and outcast me to use the Mee Too Movement and the Stand Up To Racism movement as moral imperatives to bully me, it is not odd just sad, it excuses ageism, it excuses disablism, it excuses prejudice, it excuses abuse and r**e, it excuses care and respect, it wastes their own integrity along with my own, they know I like a really fit Pakistani girl from Britain and think it is not only a tool but their tool they can use to disempower and not empower me, it is not only demotivating it violates my rights to be the best at what I’m good at, they laugh about idiots who abuse their positions and authority to disrespect my self disrespect, they create their own bad name and blame me for causing stigma to cause Islamophobia when they cause Islamophobia themselves..... they think they are soldiers to cause this and to trap me into violence from silly moral imperatives....

🇸🇦 Tuesday 20th April 2021 Asalaamo Alaikum.... MY PROPOSAL TO THE GOVERNMENT OF PAKISTAN, with my quote, a little film, also my poem and prose on the Bronte Parsonage Museum in Haworth especially written about Emily Jane Brontë of Yorkshire in England who was born on 30 July 1818 in Thornton and died on 19 December 1848 in Haworth where she was laid at the St Michael and All Angels' Church. MY POEM & PROSE: The Moon Fertile With A Peaceful Pennine Promise.... Women oh such stylish women lurk free here little ladies of my luck with lush blossoming love British women carrrying like babies in their womb good centuries old noble Haworth tradition Of great folklore literature and pretty prose to graceful customs, ‘owdo gorgeous mi bonnie lass? Lexical flowery romance of just typically costumed fun enriching feminine fortune Here live high and mighty like fearless mountains are the world's languages that be of God Aye such clever lasses so ever solemn and serene sweetly so ever ripe with rosy rapture Here the scintillating seven heavens uplifting hopes theirs to believe eternal death Quite prayers we hear murmur free, here free I say, of their beautiful creator ever fertile with peace.... Thee fight not beggars yonder marooned to a sweet kiss we ache of want so goodbye please leave us be in our dance with girls so cute.... Leave us be, leave us be, leave us be, nesting under the immersing starry moon of light above our quiet Pennine skyline.... Professor Nasir Ifzal 🇵🇰 MY PROPOSAL: The Government Of ‘Pakistan Ministry For Women’ best advised needs to refer to my ‘Maslay Misaal’ study of 18th April 2021 entitled ‘New Perspectives for Insights “Maslay Misaal” into Community Life Skills 2021’ and design an institute and curriculum specific course for women in Islamabad for women from around the world to teach the education of business innovation and digitising skills for modernising sustainable women’s prospects for work employability and working partnerships in Pakistan naming their prospectus for undergraduate, postgraduate and zakat funded free third-sector courses for Pakistani and international women who qualify to benefit Pakistan and our links to the world with diverse educational qualifications from this course, I henceforth propose the course be entitled ‘New Perspectives for Insights into Community Life Skills For Work’ based on my careful meticulously excellent research and compiled pioneering study pertinent to Pakistan of this ‘Maslay Misaal’ study of 18th April 2021. The new ‘Pakistan Ministry For Women’ can use and unite work skills and services available from my study and combine a partnership comprising the Instituto Paolo Freire in Sao Paolo Brazil, the British Council Islamabad in Pakistan, INSEAD in Fontainebleau France and our Islamabad Women Chamber of Commerce & Industry to create this new national institute in Islamabad and Karachi I here namely call PAKISTANI MINISTRY OF WOMEN. The following links will help you use your own intuition into this new education institute and curriculum for women, like Emmeline Pankhurst 1858 Manchester until 1928 London who worked her lifetime with men of philosophical integrity for the great integrity of women in realising their own iconic political philosophy and psychology from helpful sources from around the women’s resourceful world....

Your Responsibility for 2021' Proposal by Professor Nasir Ifzal Soweto is a township of the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality in Gauteng, South Africa, bordering the city's mining belt in the south. Its name is an English syllabic abbreviation for South Western Townships. Formerly a separate municipality, it is now incorporated in the City of Johannesburg Metropolitan Municipality, Suburbs of Johannesburg. Haji Chak is a rural largely agricultural focused village located in the Gujrat District in the Punjab Province of Pakistan, it is my place of birth. Haji Chak's population is around four thousand people who face a lot of high-paid unemployment to poverty but solemnly work very hard facing up to their resilience to survive this. It is a village of the union-council Bernali near the town of Jaurah Karnana and has great international links connecting the advancement of great modern wealth independence and opportunities for the continuing health of Pakistan. Myself I would like to convey that the debate on land reforms in South Africa being currently had is in present form imprecise, defective and unwieldy. Lobbyist black caucuses wielding intellectual clout fighting the South African government in the late eighties were deflected and disregarded by the dominant minority - white industrialists and capitalists, illegitimate white landowners and a one-sided white legislature, who restricted the pressing and irrepressible black freedom struggle from achieving parity in implementing land governance with view to an entirely just and equal dispersal and reallocation of land which vindicates the native dispossessed population. Early in the 90s with notable African and European help, particularly with the UK in navigation, our movement proceeded with constructive headway to hold accountable ‘systemic, institutionalized and un-decodified & constitutionally restrictive racist laws’ and enact in principle and legislation the people’s very own vanguard to fight and counteract the greedy hegemonic white controlled hegemonic bankers and white land thieves, white self-proclaimed landowners of several centuries of the pre-colonisation dominance era of slavery who helped even if coerced inflict and continue them. However, with the end of minority rule, the white colonialists stubbornly kept control of land rights that even under the ANC we have been unable to satisfactorily revoke post-apartheid, it doesn’t help my cause in Britain because anti-racists adverse odds, through the Church and Government in South Africa. The history of our struggle for white decolonisation & black empowerment and an end to the apartheid legacy of suffering in South Africa is imbued with visionary black valour, we need to reclaim all our rights conferring privileges and parity - of land ...and economy, balancing agriculture with industrial jobs of black wealth independence and wealth creation that we have been deprived of visibly and invisibly and we must assert our rights, authority and operating prowess with more substantive preponderance and success. We advocate that the present government leading the present debate in South Africa upholds a complete unfettered restitution of land that indigenous black South Africans are still striving to recoup with difficulty, much from financial inequality like financial ownership. This means we need to be more forceful in approach and dynamic in character, to circumvent or even better topple old rules and instead remould and innovate practically land reforms so that the ‘acquisition’ process becomes truly sweeping with justifiable policies where redistribution is proportional and nationwide to endow all the just desires of the silent or forgotten majority disenfranchised by the powerful. The two coinciding reasons that sparked the infamous uprisings in Soweto in 1976 - a dire decades old economic situation and our rising anger against an odious system of racial apartheid and racial violence, have since been the talk of much meticulous public deliberation of black ownership in heavily colonised states in Africa particularly South Africa. The revolt for freedom has brought political solidarity but not quite the economic prosperity expected or envisioned. Since that valiant clamour for reclaiming stolen power in 1976 the local black people of Soweto whose name I don’t know like people from Lancashire are called Lancastrians, in their community, have themselves out of being surpressed and marginalised w***y nilly, particularly under white minority-rule and dominance, have organised and have educated themselves tenaciously and freely around the need for socio-economic political development of Soweto, hence it should given luck accept civic twinning with the village of Haji Chak in the district of Gujrat in Pakistan for economic and cultural complementarity and development. These days Soweto is however still sadly languishing behind times in economic deprivation theoretical contexts, one needs to question here the government crises in failing to give the cries and concerns of local residents due political potency for achieving greater infrastructural development and industrial coupled with agricultural productivity - jobs, housing and amenities are being worked through but at an inefficient rate that needs complementarity of agriculture with industry. The cities in South Africa are enjoying modern development however still restricted to much poverty, in comparison the villages are still fighting what I would consider obscene inequality macroeconomics and levels of stratified national economic and social deprivation - even after the 'supposed' end of apartheid when black politics of power with acceptable personal economic status and wealth reinstated and reformed parliamentary politics found great relief and hopeful joy of village life in South Africa of considerably better health than the economic ownership I’ve seen in Haji Chak in Pakistan. Soweto needs to be identified in a well focused field-study or community-profile government flagship scheme and become an exemplary model for local community development in South Africa. It is a fact that communication between the residents, their representatives and the ‘parliament’ has improved extensively, however words or people alone mean little without hands-on root-and-branch action and commitment in seeking tangible and dynamic economic’ empowerment and advancement of laws and economic progress free from restraint blind to the blind like a game of ‘Peaky Blinders.’ I personally request here African protagonists and masterminds of freedom concerning the question of root and branch reform regarding the South African land acquisition process especially exploring and enabling black land governance, decolonisation, restitution, redistribution, regeneration and conservation, to brainstorm and elaborate adjoining viable to progress government recommendations to develop a guiding land-matrix to support civic matrices of viable and successful solutions to South African land and economic reforms. Land reforms, land reparations and land ownership are substantially an unfulfilled and vast pending right and to help forming genuine reconciliation still now after white minority-rule ended under Nelson Mandela and Archbishop Desmond Tutu. Such rule is still deeply ingrained the white apartheid mindset and is hard to shift or relinquish slavery ownership white colonisers responsible for black dispossession and the remnants of slavery in Africa like white pretenders, with a useless or painful lesson. This abominable injustice can only be made right with financial independence by the South African government and needs no adverse interference. If true economic reconciliation of black ownership in South Africa is to see the light of day, without a thank-you for nothing, in positively rectifying and reviving hopes of retrieving stolen land and property of vast personal wealth that must not be kept from Black South Africans under subjugation and the voiceless to fight it black or white through rightful and unreserved institutionalised policies of constitutional recompense and freeing literal and practical restitution under now the ANC umbrella of national South African politics. I say my first right is to withhold my rights, to really prevent the wild running slavery wild. Written in honour of HRH Prince Philip’s funeral today.
