Who we are

Bristol Women’s Voice is a powerful voice for women making women’s equality in Bristol a reality.

We make sure that when key decisions are taken in the city women’s voices have been heard and their concerns acted upon.

We work to increase awareness of women’s rights and to make sure services meet women’s needs.

We bring women together to share ideas and experiences, support campaigns and celebrate success so that together we can make Bristol a showcase for women’s involvement, empowerment and equality.

What we do

BWV  promotes and publicises campaigns and events that advance the equality of women. It supports Bristol Women’s Commission and works with decision makers to ensure actions are taken which make a real difference to women’s lives. The organisation informs women about services that provide support and advice, helps women set up their own support networks and celebrates women’s success.

In 2018 our projects are focusing on:

  • Fighting women’s health inequalities
  • Challenging  maternity discrimination
  • Enabling  local women to access employment in the new Temple Quarter Enterprise Zone
  • Supporting women into employment and education through volunteering 
  • Increasing women’s representation in public life
  • Celebrating the centenary of women’s votes through a program of events

How we will do it

BWV has been set up with support from Bristol City Council but is independent of the council.

BWV is managed and chosen by Bristol women for Bristol women.

BWV operates as a Charitable Incorporated Organisation  (CIO, Registered Number 1170110) managed by Bristol women chosen by Bristol women for Bristol women.

The overall direction and strategy of BWV is decided by the members, but there is a Board of Trustees that run things day to day. 

Our main source of funding comes from Bristol City Council and Public Health.
