Bristol Women’s Voice is a powerful voice for women living and working in Bristol.  We run projects that benefit women, advance equality and ensure that women’s voices are heard in decision making in the city.  We run a popular annual event for International Women’s Day, and were pivotal in the celebrations for the centenary of women’s suffrage.

  • Attend monthly board meetings;
  • Oversee the governance, performance and delivery of the charity;
  • Play an active role in supporting the charity’s work, through involvement in sub groups, attending events; providing advice and guidance and supporting ad hoc pieces of work.
