The Pankhurst Centre

The Pankhurst Centre is an iconic site of women’s activism, past and present.

This historically significant, Grade II listed building, at 62 Nelson Street, was the home of Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters, who led the Suffragette campaign for Votes for Women, and the “Pankhurst Parlour”, is where the first meeting of the Women’s Social and Political Union was held in 1903. The Centre houses a small museum and heritage centre which tells the story of the Women’s Suffrage movement.

It also serves as a women’s community centre and headquarters of Manchester’s Women’s Aid, providing confidential services to victims of domestic abuse.

As a women’s community centre it provides space for activities and events run by women, for women. It offers a unique place in which women can learn together, work on projects and socialise.
