    Is this caring responsibilities? Looks like employment issues!

  3. This sounds really interesting. Where will it be held?

    Thank you to BWV for arranging the event. I was, in the main, shocked by the candidates attitudes & lack of insight into women’s lives. I’m all for the idea of holding the successful candidate to their promises, but how do we do it?

    New Year Wishlist: Can we ask for Social Media links, so that we can share on Facebook and Tweet these crucial news? Thanks

    Happy Winter Solstice and New Year to all!

    The event was very inspiring to see so many successful women.
    Thank you for organising it.

  7. The Sky Project is a bristol based small charity providing training and services on the issue of forced marriages. Although we should not exclude men, the majority of victims are women. See our website at http://www.skyproject.org.uk. Thank you.

    Very important to have such a service in Bristol, and for people to know it is there. Thanks for this, Jo.

  9. Great to announce that we had a response from the Learning Partnership West (LPW):

    “As a response to Operation Brooke and the recent Bristol court cases, LPW will be commissioned by Bristol City Council to develop a programme with our Consortium partners – Barnardos and 16-25. We recognise the issue as primarily one of valuing and promoting gender equality – protecting and preventing young women, and Somali females in particular, from sexual exploitation.”

    We will follow this up when the project goes live in the New Year!

    Hi,
    That was an interesting evaluation. I was at the opening high wire event and had tickets for the indoor mingling with lots of those involved and their high profile guests.

    The hot mulled cider was delicious and the pie, gravy and mushy peas were just what was needed on such a cold night. The green, re-usable hot drink cups were a great gift too and there was much talk of asking coffee shops to give a 15p discount for those turning up with one of these mugs.
    Notably, there were heaps of perceived “very important” successful men there & the women appeared only as facilitators to present the important men on both the outdoor & the indoor presentations.
    I’d like to see this change as we lag so far behind other countries and its a poor legacy to leave our children.

  11. this looks like a very interesting day. come on sisters , get on down to the Mshed and hear other women or have your say…………………………………It’s time to revive that feminist/womanist spirit and say no more to mail domination!!!!!!!!

    Good afternoon BWV,

    Esme here from the Bristol Post, I was wondering if someone might be available to have a quick chat about Sarah’s Law and the number of applications the police have received in Bristol – I have the figures.

    My work email is esme.ashcroft@localwolrd.co.uk and my work number is 0117 9343 233.

    I love forward to hearing from you soon.

    Hello,

    Where can I find details of where the volunteers meeting is being held? I only came across this last night and have emailed for more information but have not yet received a response. If I’m not too late to register an interest I’d really love to attend the meeting and find out more about this project!

    Thanks!
    Lizzie
