Upfront and Onside: the Women’s Football Conference at National Football Museum, Cathedral Quarter, 8–9 March 2018, from £50-80 - Visit now

It’s 2018, and though women’s football has undoubtedly made huge strides in terms of supporters, status and recognition, it remains significantly overshadowed by its male-counterpart and continues to face numerous gender-related challenges.

As part of Wonder Women 2018, Manchester’s National Football Museum is celebrating 150 years of women’s football with an international two-day conference, bringing together leading academics from across ‘the field’ (get it?), and museums and heritage sector.

Presentations will include: Women’s Football and Curatorial practice, Women’s football in South America, Football in the Hijab: International Muslim women football stars, Manchester City Women 1988-2018: an Oral History, and Imaging Women’s Football in the early twentieth century.

9.30am - 4.30pm
