This year the theme for the week was Women in Democracy and events included panel discussions of women in leadership, guided walks around the suffragette sites of Manchester, Young People’s Question Time and talks by women from across public life.Speakers throughout the week included Mariella Frostrup, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson, Mary Beard, Ronke Phillips, Thusha Kamaleswaran, Jenny Sealey MBE and Cush Jumbo with Baroness Young of Hornsey acting as spokesperson.The week received 2269 pieces of coverage including 26 national pieces, 183 regional pieces and 13 broadcast interviews. Highlights included BBC Democracy Live, The Guardian, The Huffington Post, The London Evening Standard, Time Out and The Londonist.Four Colman Getty also worked to organised an event with The Daily Telegraph’s Wonder Women section.
