The Pankhurst Centre in Manchestermarker provides a women only space that creates a unique environment in which women can learn together, work on projects and socialise.

The centre is of historical significance as it was the home of Emmeline Pankhurst and her daughters Sylvia, Christabel and Adela who were heavily involved in the campaign for votes for women. It has been converted from the original pair of Georgian houses at 60 & 62 Nelson Street, Manchester 13: all the other buildings in the street are comparatively modern apart from the Manchester Royal Eye Hospitalmarker and part of the Royal Infirmary.

It also contains a museum: The Pankhurst Parlour which has become a memorial to the suffragette movement, its Edwardian style furnishings evoke the home of Mrs Pankhurst and her daughters. The Parlour was the first room in the Pankhurst Centre to be redecorated and was the centre of attraction when Barbara Castle opened the Centre on 10 October 1987.

Nelson Street runs approximately east from Oxford Road in Chorlton-upon-Medlockmarker.
