University #UoMwomen social media campaign

(9 February 2018)

As you will have seen in last week’s eNews, Humanities is leading the University #UoMwomen social media campaign, which is taking place throughout February and March.

The campaignshowcases the work of our colleagues, and content relating to women and inequalities. Please get involved and share any content celebrating women, feminism or demonstrating women against inequalities on social media, including the specially created #UoMwomen. 

Vikki Goddard, Humanities Director of Faculty Operations, has shared her thoughts on a poster specifically designed to be shared on social media, as have some of our other female staff from across the Faculty including Dr Sarah Marie Hall from the School of Environment, Education and Development.  You can download and print the poster (choose A3) the post a photo of yourself, as Sarah and Vikki have. 

Please feel free to share content featuring both women and men including:

  • tweets and links to research about women’s empowerment in some way;
  • blogs (old or new) which relate to women’s empowerment;
  • short videos or photos you may be able to take of yourself on your phone – you could share some thoughts on the suffragettes, your research and how it relates to feminism etc. Quick videos between 10 and 90 seconds are ideal. They don’t need to look incredibly polished – relaxed videos taken by you work well;
  • you could write thoughts about suffrage, Ellen Wilkinson or the link between the Pankhursts and The University of Manchester on the poster, and post a picture of you holding it to your social media accounts.

You do not need to inform anyone of your planned videos or activity - please just get involved, create something and post it on social media using #UoMwomen during February and March.
