This year's Pankhurst Lecture will be presented by Dame Anne Owers, former Chief Inspector of Prisons and now

Christabel Pankhurst was a suffragette and leading figure in the Women's Social and Political Union.
She obtained a First Class degree in Law from The University of Manchester, but, as a woman, was unable to practise as a barrister.
The School of Law founded the Pankhurst Lecture to commemorate Christabel Pankhurst’s achievements,
to celebrate the achievements that have been made in women’s rights and to highlight the work still to be done.
The lecture will be followed by a reception in the Whitworth Hall, to which all attendees are invited.
