International Women’s Day recognises women’s achievements and highlights the continued struggle for equal rights and equality for women. As the birthplace of women’s suffrage in the UK, Manchester has always been at the heart of the women’s movement. We’ve been celebrating International Women’s Day for more than 25 years.
Ms Kane, Executive Headteacher of both Whalley Range 11-18 High School and Levenshulme High School, was delighted with the nomination:
It was a real honour to be shortlisted and it was a wonderful event, celebrating women’s contribution to our City.
A special video profile was created as part of this shortlisting and can be watched here on this page. Congratulations to Ms Kane on this wonderful achievement.
