For many years now I have wanted to take our (Motherwell Cheshire) International Women’s Day Celebrations to the next level. As a leader of a Women’s and Girls Grass roots charity I am passionate about amplifying the voices of the women that we support in our local community. With the impact of covid I felt it was the right time to bring a network of change makers together to influence policy and services locally and beyond.
The idea is based on the Greater Manchester collaboration GM4Women, here is their website: https://www.gm4women2028.org/
Their collaboration is championed by Dr Helen Pankhurst who has helped shaped my idea and is very much based on the same concept - bringing women together to bring about positive change.
This will not be a political group; it will be a group where I plan to work with local councilors and MPs to share our findings and provide a voice for women.
I would also like the group to bring together Women’s celebrations such as Motherwell Women’s Day, Story House Women’s etc. So that we can work together and complement each celebration.
I am keen to work with as many of you as possible on this, from women in sport, women in local politics, women passionate about supporting other women, women artists etc etc. The list goes on and on.
If you know anyone else, you feel would like to join us please do send this email their way Kablakemore@gmail.com
To bring a network of Women organisations & Women together to work collaboratively to influence change and support each other with individual campaigns and support services.
The Women of Cheshire and beyond.
Currently we have decided to have 3 main sub groups:
With Safety and Equality underpinning each section.
The first meeting will be held online on 21st September at 1pm.
