VoiceBox CafeFrom June 2018 to Dec 2018 Voicebox Cafés are taking place in 36 Online Centres, celebrating 100 years of some women getting the right to vote. Using session plans and resources, Voicebox Cafés will provide a supportive and informal place where women can build their own and each other’s confidence in speaking out on issues that matter to them, discovering how to use their democratic voice to the full. In the centenary year of some women getting the right to vote, we all still have a part to play in creating a society where women’s voices are heard. Voicebox Cafés aim to do just that. Please take part in our project, join us for some coffee and delicious cake in September, October and November 2018.
