Amazing American Women Picnic

Join us at our July 2017 Social Meeting where we’ll be having a picnic at Hyde Park at 6:30 pm.

We’ll provide a few drinks and snacks; share the solidarity by also bringing more to mingle with fellow members. Remember to also bring a blanket and most importantly your favorite American Woman!

What do we mean?

July is the month where we celebrate our nation’s independence, a time to remember what our forefathers fought for, but what about our foremothers?

The theme this month is “Amazing American Women” or “The Women Who Shaped America” for Independence Day.

As such, it would be amazing for all of us to share a short mention on inspiring American women you look up to and what actions you have taken because of them, on inspiring Indigenous women throughout American history highlighting their achievements and what action we can take to support or honour them, or on Patriotic women (whatever that means to you) women today working towards a better future. 

Don’t stress! It’s only about a 200 words max (3-5 sentences) on them; also have their picture ready on your phone or bring a print out to share for everyone who see who she is!

Why are we doing this at our picnic?

For us to be aware of the impact women make in our country and how quite often their work is not highlighted or recognized, this is great information for all us to become aware to choose the right candidate for 2020!

If your research inspires you to much more please see how you can contribute and be featured on our blog! How?

Submit one of the below to comms@womenscaucus.co.uk:

– Indigenous women (800-1000 words): a spotlight on inspiring indigenous women throughout American history. Highlighting their achievements and what action we can take to support or honour them.

– Member submissions (200 words max) on inspiring American women you look up to and what actions you have taken because of them – we’d love as many of these as possible for a feature piece!

– Patriotic Women (800-1000 words): Who are the patriotic (whatever that means to you) women today working towards a better future? 

We can’t wait to see you there and plan a great future together for 2020!
