Womanchester: Who we are
We are Womanchester, a grassroots women’s rights group from Manchester and Salford.
In September 2019, we took part in an annual, national bike ride, as part of Jean Hatchet’s project “Ride for Murdered Women”, which raised over £11,000 for Nia. Nia’s CEO is Karen Ingala Smith, who started documenting this femicide in 2012, and who is dedicated to counting the women murdered through male violence in her census. These two amazing women inspired us to create this memorial.
