Celebrating women in Nottingham – nominate a “Woman of Substance” by 11th February 2011

Posted on: 27 January 2011

On Tuesday 8th March it’s International Women’s Day. In Nottingham women from across the city have been working together for the past few months to develop plans for how Nottingham will celebrate Nottingham women, past and present, who have made a difference to the lives of local people.

The 100 Women of Substance scheme launched earlier in January will celebrate women who have been an inspiration to others.

Nottingham City Council is working with the Nottingham Women’s Centre, the Women’s Voluntary Action Network, and many other private sector organisations like Nottingham Playhouse, Seismik, Gemini PR, Rizk- McCay and local designer Debbie Bryan, to create a week long series of events and activities in the city to celebrate International Women’s Day, including an event to celebrate our 100 Women of Substance.

We are looking for nominations from anyone who knows a woman who has been an inspiration to others, perhaps having broken down professional or personal barriers; fought for the rights of others; worked selflessly to improve the lives of others or made a lasting impact on our city.

Anyone wishing to make a Women of Substance nomination has until 5.30pm on February 11 to submit 100 words describing why their choice should be recognised, along with a recent photograph and their contact details.

Nominations should be sent to email: or posted to Nottingham’s Women’s Centre, 30 Chaucer Street, Nottingham NG1 5LP.


A number of other events are also planned for International Women’s Day. They are taking place throughout the same week. This list will be added to as more events are finalised so please keep checking back at
