What does it mean to be a woman in Manchester? The many possible answers to such a rarely asked question are unthinkably diverse, depending of course upon who you ask. As part of Wonder Women 2018, self-identifying women of all ages and backgrounds from across the city are invited to the People’s History Museum to share their unique perspective on what it means to be a woman in Manchester today, and their hopes for the future.

Women Rule Manchester is a continually evolving durational interview and live performance, created by the acclaimed female collective Girl Gang Manchester. Originally presented as part of Manchester International Festival (MIF) 2017’s Creative50 programme, the piece is inspired by the work of theatre companies and artists such as Quarantine, Forced Entertainment and Marina Abramovich, and was formed in response to two of MIF2017’s most popular commissions: What Is The City But The People? and What If Women Ruled The World?

The event promises to continue and progress an engaging series of debates around cultural identity, identity politics, feminism, and the confessional nature of the internet and vlogosphere, whilst creating a unique and diverse community of women for a brief period in time.
