Today is International Women’s Day and to celebrate, MM took to the streets of Manchester to find out which women inspire them the most.

Dating back to 1909, the first day of its kind was held in America and it is now celebrated in more than 40 countries across the world.

This year’s theme is ‘Planet 50-50 by 2030’, with the aim of achieving absolute gender equality in the next 14 years.

Our respondents came up with a variety of names, from international footballers to their own mum.
