Although they marched to the call of “Deeds not Words” the legacy of the Suffragette’s campaign is one full of inspiring and emotive words that drew people to their vision for equality then and now.

This Sunday we’ll be at “Deeds not Words: A one day conference celebrating women’s activism in Manchester”, at Plant Noma in Central Manchester.

Organised by the Manchester branch of the Women’s Equality Party, there will be many local groups, organisations and individuals in attendance, including The Pankhurst Trust, Women Asylum Speakers Together, Stop the Traffik, Pregnant then Screwed and the LGBT Foundation.

We’ll be encouraging attendees to contribute and to spread the word to their family and friends.

The 24th November deadline for submission is steadily creeping up on us, so it’s time to get cracking on your story, poem, memories or thoughts.
