IWD’23 Girl Boss Equity Festival

9 March @ 5:00 pm


Ever meet a fella putting ‘Boy’ before ‘Boss’…? Nope, us neither.

This International Women’s Day, let’s be defined by Verbs. A community of collaborative women – Doing boss, not Being boss. Celebrating our stories and skills, and coming together for equity.

Join us for Headline Performances, Feminist Story-Telling, Spoken Word and Live Music – along with a Milk & Honey kitchen take-over by Gwafuvegan, for vegan West African food, and wine and drinks by Isca Wines. Women from across Manchester are joining us with stalls and showcases of their art, crafts, baking, jewellery, henna and more – and bring along your little (7-11 year old, girl-identifying) folk to our “Small. Fierce. Feminist”, sessions led by Developing Dignity – which is especially for tomorrow’s truth-to-power bringers.

It’s going to be amazing – and that’s because women are amazing. We just all need different resources and opportunities to live our most Whole and fulfilled lives. That’s Equity – and this is our call to action. Our story-tellers will explore this in their own lives, and we’ll also have resources and support organisations here for you to get involved or find out more.
