It’s no secret that Manchester has a deep history and culture. It is the world’s first truly modern city, the place where mankind first split the atom and the birthplace of the first modern computer. Disraeli, and many others after him, have said “What Manchester thinks today, the world thinks tomorrow.”
Manchester is the birthplace of the industrial revolution
Manchester Suffragette Movement
Emmeline Pankhurst was born in Moss Side, Manchester in 1858, and she was a bold political activist. She was frustrated by the lack of progress in the fight for votes for women, and so she set up the Women’s Social and Political Union (WSPU) in 1903. The female-only party became known as the suffragettes, and were deliberately provocative.
Pankhurst was named as one of the 100 most important people of the 20th century by Time, and now has a statue situated in St Peter’s Square.
