Suffragette City is the culmination of a period of activity aimed at recognising and celebrating women’s achievements in the music industry. In the year we celebrate 100 years of Suffrage in the UK, we want to pause and highlight the roles women have played, bringing their voices to the fore. We set out to show just how vibrant, brilliant and influential women in music have been and continue to be.
This exhibition, curated by Manchester Digital Music Archive co-founder Alison Surtees, features photographic portraits of 25 key women in Greater Manchester music, including venue owners, sound engineers, record label managers, DJs and musicians.
Join us for the opening of our exhibition on Friday 23rd February from 5.30pm. Music comes from DJs Abigail Ward, Kath McDermott and Paulette, 5pm-1am.
Exhibition closing date: Saturday 10th March.
This exhibition is part of our ongoing project, Rebel Music – The Sound of Politics and Protest in Manchester and is funded by Heritage Lottery Fund.
