A celebration of women's action
Louise Jordan performs 'A Celebration of Women's Action' in Eldon Building on Friday 8 March, as part of International Women's Day.
The composer and performer writes songs about real-life inspirational women from the past. Her project ‘No Petticoats Here’ toured between 2016 and 2018, sharing the stories of extraordinary women who lived during the First World War.
Louise’s latest project, ‘The Hard Way’, tours throughout 2019, telling the remarkable story of Hannah Mitchell, who grew up in poverty on a remote hilltop farm in the Derbyshire moorlands and escaped domestic drudgery to become a campaigner, speaker, writer, suffragette, councillor and finally a Manchester city magistrate.
This event is organised in collaboration with the Women and Gender Studies Research Group.

Time: 6.00 – 7:30 pm
