University celebrates International Women’s Day

The University celebrated International Women’s Day (March 8) this week to recognise all the fantastic achievements by women at Manchester Metropolitan and beyond.

You may have spotted a campaign across our social media channels featuring a fascinating look at the history of the Suffragettes with Kate Cook (below), among others, and showcasing the fantastic success of University students and staff in research, sport and STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics).

A series of events were held on Thursday and Friday to celebrate International Women’s Day. You can read more about them here.
