Pride of the Lionesses Q&A with Carrie Dunn Calendar

11 October 2019 - 11 October 2019
12pm - 1pm


While England's Lionesses headed to France for the 2019 Women's World Cup as superstars in search of silverware, FA upheavals back home were moving the goalposts for the newly all-pro elite teams, for part-timers and amateurs alike. Is women's football in England actually growing from top to bottom?

Author and academic Carrie Dunn is back with the follow-up to her 2015 smash hit Roar of the Lionesses, charting the progress of the women's game in this country, from the upper echelons to grassroots level.

Carrie will be discussing the new book, Pride of the Lionesses, from midday in the Pitch Gallery, before answering questions from the audience. All welcome; city of Manchester residents and Sporting Memories Network members get in free!
