Coronavirus - updates and advice
The campaign aims to:
Women should be equal in our homes, our societies, our governments, and in our workplaces.
Believe in her is supporting a behaviour change for gender equality. We want to encourage men and women to join the conversation; and bring down the boundaries and limitations that gender inequality puts up.
Join our efforts and be a part of the conversation!
Sign up to the pledge to take action against the discrimination facing women and girls.
Gender equality is not only a women’s issue, it affects everyone, men included.
It affects the young who’ll shape our future and the men who have hopes that their daughters will grow up in a world where they are safe and treated as equals.
It affects the men that want to show a sensitive side as much as it does the women who want to be strong.
For the campaign to succeed it requires a behaviour change needs your commitment.
Sign up to pledge and then share the message with your family, friends and colleagues.
International Women's Day (external link) is a national campaign set up to empower women of all ages to achieve anything they put their minds to.
Many residents and local celebrities have backed the campaign such as Jenny Meadows (Team GB athlete), Sarah Jayne Dunn (Actress) and Matty Smith (Wigan Warriors player). The Believe In Her campaign was set up to inspire women of the borough to achieve their dreams and all residents of the borough to support gender equality.
