The Pankhurst Centre*

The Pankhurst Centre is an iconic site of women’s activism, past and present. Emmeline Pankhurst and her family lived at number 62 Nelson Street from 1898 until 1907, and the first meeting of the movement that became known as the suffragettes took place in the parlour of this house!

The Pankhurst Centre is the only place where members of the public can visit a former home of the Pankhurst family, and is the only museum dedicated to telling the story of women’s fight for the right to vote.

The building continues the fight for women’s equality today as the headquarters of Manchester Women’s Aid, providing confidential services to victims of domestic abuse, and as a women’s centre, supporting women’s activism in Manchester and our local community. https://www.pankhursttrust.org/pankhurst-centre
