You can read what our volunteers say about their experience with BWV below.
“When I started my Masters at Bristol University this September, Bristol was totally new to me but I quickly heard about the work BWV do to represent and promote women’s voices in the city. As I’m studying Gender and International Relations, I was keen to build some work experience and contribute to an organisation working in this area. The range of events, campaigns and projects BWV runs and supports really appealed to me.
“I began volunteering for Bristol Women’s Voice this Autumn. Having recently moved to Bristol to begin a Masters in History, with specialisms in gender history and contemporary feminisms, I was keen to become integrated in the city whilst pursuing something I was passionate about. Having heard about Bristol Women’s Voice through a friend, I was eager to get involved.
“I’m a PhD student at the University of Bristol, working on BBC broadcasts and female writers. I started volunteering with BWV a few months ago because I wanted to find out what was going on in my city and get women’s voices heard! What with so much uncertainty in politics and public life at the moment, I wanted to be part of an organisation that champions gender equality and changes the conversation.
