Suffragette City will host a charitable International Women's Day party in Manchester
Featuring a lineup made up of entirely female-identifying DJs, all proceeds will go towards raising money for Greater Manchester’s women’s charities, including Women Asylum Seekers Together, Emmeline’s Pantry, Keeping Our Girls Safe and Contact Hostel. In 2019, organisers managed to raise over £3000.

Co-founder Abigail Ward says, “At a time when [women’s] 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.”
