We’re looking for a woman to support our Women’s Voices movement in Nottingham.
What’s Nottingham Women’s Voices?
We are all women from Nottingham who would like to get to know and learn from other women in our city. The group started after the Manchester bombing and Finsbury park mosque attack. Women wanted to reassure their communities and stand together against hate. It has grown to include women of different faiths and those with none.
Nottingham Women’s Voices is a place:
To be heard
To explore what I think about things
To learn about issues
To find out facts
To get support
We speak out as a group when we don’t like what’s being said about us or people are telling us what to do.
We have a small planning group, a WhatsApp group and Facebook group to share info about events or facts about incidents. We run regular conversation cafes – a chance to talk about sensitive issues in a small group and meet women who are different to us. We have an annual event to grow the network and plan for next year.
We are open to all women. We are different but together.
Main role – to provide support to the Women’s Voices planning group.
