Women Walking Manchester: My Phd Research, please help

Hello everyone, I am currently in the middle of my PhD research and would love to find more participants. Your help would be much appreciated

Creative Walking and Women in Manchester: Seeking Participants
I am a PhD student at The University of Sheffield. My current research is exploring walking and women’s feelings, thoughts and experiences of public space and the urban environment in Manchester. I am conducting one-to-one walking interviews in Manchester city centre with women who live, work and/or study in the city. The pace, direction and subject of the interviews are set by the participants. My definition of walking includes sticks, wheels and any other mobility aids and all women over 18 are welcome.
Interviews are scheduled to take place between 14th April – 30th June. If possible I would like to start in Piccadilly Gardens some time between 12noon-2pm but the time and location can be flexible according to your needs and interests. If you would prefer to sit down and chat that can also be arranged. Interviews last between 45-60 minutes and the direction they take is up to you. There will be group walks using creative methods later in the year. (There is no obligation to take part in the second stage but all participants will be welcome to do so). This research has been approved by the ethics committee at The University of Sheffield.
For more information or to arrange an interview please email mltrose1@sheffield.ac.uk or call me on 07974929589
THANKS so much to those who have already walked and talked with me,  it has been very inspiring and interesting and every conversation is much appreciated. Please also do pass this on to anyone else who may be interested
I hope to walk and talk with you soon
Best wishes
Morag
