The Council and democracy International Women's Day 2023

Walk for Women 

The Walk for Women will be back again this International Women’s Day 2023, with a walk on Saturday 4 March.

We’ll be meeting outside Manchester Cathedral, on Victoria Street, at 12noon for a 12.30pm start, walking together along Deansgate and then up Peter Street to St Peter's Square. See a map and accessibility info for the route.

There are rest stops along the way and dropped kerbs for wheelchair access. If you're not a regular walker we'd recommend bringing a bottle of water with you.

Register for the Walk for Women

This walk is a fabulous opportunity to come together with family and friends, colleagues - and strangers too - to share our passion for equality and creating opportunities for Manchester women. 

You're encouraged to bring along fun, safe and noisy instruments to bang and clang, or make the most of your voice and join us with our chants.

Whether you’re a lone ranger or part of a group, we’d love to see you walking with us: the Walk for Women event is totally free and anyone can take part. If you'd like to register your group to have an official place in the walk, apply using our registration form.

You can also keep up to date by on the event by visiting our Facebook page.

After the Walk for Women, a number of community groups and organisations will have display stalls in the Central Library. You're invited to come along and find out more about the work going on in Manchester’s communities.

Citywide events

Across the city, groups will be coming together for events with guest speakers, community meals and displays of arts, crafts and music, all focused around a celebration of International Women’s Day.
