International Women’s Day WolvHERampton Get Together

WolvHERampton Social Media Surgery

Over the last few months we’ve been working on a project with women across Wolverhampton to help them improve their digital skills. We’ve been doing this through a series of Social Media Surgeries with the support of Podnosh bringing people together offline to get them talking to us and teaching them the skills to continue that conversation online – the ultimate aim of this is to improve our networks and get people talking about the things that matter to them that effect women in our city.

Last week was International Women’s Week with Saturday being International Women’s Day so we took to opportunity to arrange a larger gathering than at the surgeries we’ve held to date. Bringing a bigger group together to introduce them to this project and discuss being a Women in Wolverhampton in 2014.

The interactions were varied from skill swaps – getting each other set up on Twitter or looking at how to use a camera, to conversations about their hobbies and opportunities for other group activities, the cuts the city is facing and shared connections but everyone drank tea and ate cake while inspiring each other with shared experience.

We took the opportunity to capture a few people on video to tell us what women inspired them. From local women to historical figures the responses were diverse and you can view them all below – but you can also tell us in the comments – Who inspires you?
