Nominate an iconic woman born in your home country or island to celebrate the contribution of women in public life across the globe for International Women’s Day.
We’re aiming to fill an online map of Guernsey with flags from around the world, and to do so by International Women’s Day on 8 March.
Each flag will represent an iconic woman, nominated by a Guernsey resident who was born in that country or island. A pop-up box will give more information about the woman and the name of her nominator, as well as links to any relevant local organisations.
Women in Public Life committee member Linda Rolf says, ‘We’re looking forward to receiving some great nominations of iconic women who are celebrated for what they have achieved – ideally in politics or public life, but it could be in other areas such as the sciences, arts, sport. It could be a woman who is alive today or from any period in history.
‘Our ultimate objective is to inspire and support a diverse and representative range of women to stand for public office in Guernsey because we know that balanced teams make better decisions’.
