Use your voice: Women who are changing the world
Published: 12th Dec 2018
It’s 100 years since the Representation of the People Act saw some women gaining the right to vote for the first time. We’ve come a long way since then, but there’s still much work to be done.
Voicebox Cafés is a year-long project funded by the Women’s Centenary Fund, designed to support women to understand, participate and celebrate democracy. Through Online Centres across the country, and using our digital learning platform ‘Learn My Way’ as an enabler, over 1,000 women to date have been inspired to get involved.
The women in this book perfectly represent the Voicebox Cafés project. They are from different places and have achieved different things. But they all have one thing in common - they create change. They create change in their lives, in their communities, and their country; for themselves and for the people around them. They’re not afraid to stand up and be heard, and they know that in order to make the world a better place someone needs to take action. Why not them?
