Suffragette City returns for International Women’s Day 2020 to host an all-day all-night party at Manchester’s The Refuge on Saturday March 7.

Featuring a lineup made up of entirely female-identifying DJs, all proceeds will go towards raising money for Greater Manchester’s women’s charities, including Women Asylum Seekers Together, Emmeline’s Pantry, Keeping Our Girls Safe and Contact Hostel. In 2019, organisers managed to raise over £3000.

Suffragette City is organised by Abigail Ward of Manchester Digital Music Archive, Rina Ladybeige of vinyl-only party Social Service, BBC Radio 6 Music producer Kath McDermott and DJ Chris Massey.

The lineup features mainstays of Manchester’s dance music scene, such as DJ Paulette, Philippa Jarman of Homoelectric, and the Disco Mums collective.

Co-founder Abigail Ward says, “At a time when [women’s] refuges are suffering deep cuts and many women’s groups have to rely on self-organisation to fundraise, coming together to make a difference is more important than ever.”
