SUFFRAGETTE CITY 2020
Saturday March 7th sees the return of Suffragette City – the women-led all-day music event at The Refuge
, Manchester, which raises money for Greater Manchester women’s charities.
At a time when refuges are suffering deep cuts and many women’s groups have to rely on self-organisation to fundraise, coming together to make a difference is more important than ever.
Last year the event raised over £3k and we hope to smash that record and enjoy coming together in the same atmosphere of love, defiance and celebration.
