Celebrate women social media initiative

Dr Kirstin Ferguson began the #CelebratingWomen project to see more celebration, less denigration of women online. She has committed to sharing the profiles of 2 women, from anywhere in the world, every single day in 2017.  The project has gained a huge following with women from more than a dozen countries around the world getting involved.

This editorial, written by Kirstin and published by Women's Media in January 2017, explains how the project originally began. 

She is looking for more women to get involved. All women are welcome to participate, please see the website for more information.

Follow the CelebratingWomen Facebook page and @CelebratingWom on Twitter. You can also connect with Dr Kirstin Ferguson via Twitter or LinkedIn.

'Every woman is a role model to someone else. We can make role models visible by sharing women's stories and celebrating all they achieve' - Kristen Ferguson.
