Between the years 1789 to 1914, Victorian Manchester was known as a hotbed of technological innovation, social dynamism and cultural revolution. Uniting all these movements were the women across the North West, who fought within each of these movements, often with great personal sacrifice. As a result, the term “New Women” emerged as a way to describe those who promoted better education and independence and lived according to these values.
For this project, Visioning Lab have hand-picked 9 individuals, many of whom belong to LGBT groups, BAME backgrounds and working-class communities, to shed light on the women who came before us, whilst helping us to imagine a future of new women who are still to come.
The trail features locations associated with these inspirational women, including Annie Kenney, Sarah Parker Remond, Mary Quaile, Annie Horniman and many more.
*IMPORTANT* In preparation for this event, please download the Echoes app available on Google Play and the App Store, as we will be using this throughout the trail.
The socially-distanced walk and talk will begin at 12pm outside Manchester Central Library and will venture through Deansgate and Spinningfields. We anticipate it will take between 1-1.5 hours to complete, with the full route available below:
