What does Bristol Fawcett do?

Bristol Fawcett at International Womens' Day 2015Bristol Fawcett members are active in the local campaign for gender equality. We support the aims of the Fawcett Society and work at a local level to:

  • Raise awareness of Fawcett and the work that Fawcett does
  • Campaign and lobby to improve policy and services for women and girls
  • Bring an informed gender equality perspective to local decision making bodies

Bristol Fawcett is an activist group, whose members seek not primarily to talk about feminism but to ‘do’ feminism and make a difference – however small – to awareness, policy and practice in the local area. Members give their time, their ideas, and their skills, to projects and events that we undertake.

Currently we have a vacancy for a co-ordinator to help us re-establish our monthly meetings, and until the post is filled our members can keep in touch via our Facebook page.


Fawcett is the UK’s leading charity campaigning for gender equality and women’s rights. We have a proud history that we can trace back to the campaign for women’s votes. Read more.
