About Bristol Women's Voice

Bristol Women’s Voice will make sure that when key decisions are taken women’s voices have been listened to and their ideas and concerns acted on. BWV will also help women and girls across the city to find services they need, how to support one another, how to join local organisations and set up new ones, find and promote events and services for women and share ideas and issues.

BWV will enable women to come together either by meeting or through the web site, Facebook, blogs, twitter etc. to decide what are the most important issues facing women and girls in the city and work together to tackle them.

Bristol Women’s Voice has been set up with support from Bristol City Council but is independent of the council. Bristol Women’s Voice will operate as an incorporated charity and will be managed by Bristol women for Bristol women

Our Projects

In summer 2019 Bristol Women’s Voice launched the City Listening Project supported by the Government Equalities Office (GEO) to ensure the voices of women, particularly those that frequently go unheard, contribute to better policy-making. The GEO was particularly keen to hear from women facing multiple barriers including those in low paid employment, BAME women and disabled women. The City Listening Project report is available and can be found here.
Bristol Women’s Voice is working in the city to equip women with a basic knowledge of their pregnancy and maternity rights at work. Our Maternity Discrimination Project aims to provide disadvantaged women with access to information on their legal rights and help reduce financial and emotional stress caused as a result of discrimination. The project aims to reduce the number of women losing their jobs as a result of maternity discrimination and help women return to work after maternity leave.
