Women Who Inspire – International Women’s Day

i Mar 1st No Comments by

As part of International Women’s Day and the Pledge for Parity, we are launching a new series called “Women Who Inspire” with an event at Winks Eatery at 6:30 p.m. We want to collect and share stories of everyday women in London who inspire you. By sharing and telling these stories, we hope to inspire more women to see themselves as leaders.

Our first event will be hosted by Sophie Helpard, President, University Students’ Council, Western University. Sophie will tell us a bit about her own story, maybe touching on a woman or two who has inspired her along the way, and then we are going to ask you for your own stories. We want to hear who inspires you – a paragraph or a few bullet points is all you need to share. You can send us your stories beforehand by:

  • Tweeting @fempolildn
  • Messaging us on Facebook
  • Emailing
  • Filling out the form below

and we will share them in the leadup to our event. Or, you can just come out on March 7th and tell us in 2-3 minutes who inspires you and why.

If you are more of a sit back and listen kind of person, we still want you to come out. We will have cue cards for you to write your inspiring woman story on, or you can just kick back and take it all in.

And since we know, women just don’t inspire women, they inpsire all of us, we welcome everyone to our event. Women, men, children, you name it, we want you there.

Registration is not neccesary but it will help us plan our event. If the day comes around and you have three friends you convinced to come but they didn’t register, please don’t worry, bring them along.

So get thinking:  who are the women in London and area who inspire you and why? What is their story?

We can’t wait to hear about it!
