Almost 2,000 members
The Facebook group was set up to give women on the Isle of Wight a voice and now has almost 2,000 followers from the Island and worldwide.

There is an ‘Inspiring Women’s Hour’ on Vectis Radio on Thursday afternoons and the group promotes all community and charity events that are female-related but not Businesses.

Founders: “Be your authentic selves”
Group founders, Caroline Diamond and Barbara Jane Mackie, said,

“We would like to invite all women along to Appley, many do not see themselves as ‘inspiring’! The group is about inspiring others to have confidence and be your authentic selves. It is certainly not ‘anti men’!

“It would be great to see WI groups represented as well as Townswomen’s Guilds and choirs. Last year we were delighted to have Green MP, Caroline Lucas in attendance.”
