Nothing About Us, Without Us
Nothing About Us, Without Us, is the theme for Tower Hamlets Women's Network. The platform is a collective voice for uplifting and supporting women living in Tower Hamlets.
Hence a platform for Change. We will focus on bringing women's equality into the conversation in everything that is concerning us in Tower Hamlets.
The Network aims to create a strong and supportive programme for local ethnically diverse women and raise their profile in the borough. For them to come together to share ideas and explore current issues impacting them, find solutions that work for the whole community and support each other.
"It is great to have the Network and women connecting within the borough. I think it’s fantastic that there is a place for women of Tower Hamlets to uplift, empower and motivate each other, to share ideas and experiences."
"I feel like I belong somewhere, where people can understand one another. As women, we face challenges and barriers on a daily basis. I feel motivated every time I attend the network gatherings. It makes me want to carry on and do more. I also enjoy listening to other people talking, sharing their experiences and learning more from them."
"My message to the women is to take all the opportunities that you see being offered. Aim for your goals and do everything possible to achieve them. Don’t let being a woman, stop you from doing anything.
Best wishes for the future to all the women in Tower Hamlets."
