Monday 8 March 2021 is International Women’s Day
. It also marks the 8th anniversary of the founding of Bristol Women’s Commission
(BWC) – the only commission of its type in the UK. Without any physical events at City Hall this year, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, BWC is shifting its focus online.
The Commission will be sharing videos from leaders and organisations across Bristol which highlight what progress has been made for women across different areas of work over the past 8 years, and what action is currently being taken to support women in the city through the COVID-19 crisis. The videos be re-shared on BWC’s and Bristol One City
‘s social media channels.
Call to action:
Simply film a short video as per the instructions below and share it to your organisation’s social media channels on International Women’s Day (Monday 8 March 2021) with the hashtags #BristolWomen
, tagging @BWCommission on Twitter
and ‘Bristol Women’s Commission’ on LinkedIn
The videos should be no more than 2.5 minutes long and should answer the following questions:
- What progress has been made for women and girls in Bristol in your area of work over the past 8 years?
- How has this been achieved?
- What work is currently taking place to help women and girls in Bristol?
