Welcome to the What Women Want 2.0 campaign, where we simply ask you to share what you want today and in the future.
Launched on International Women’s Day and running throughout the spring and summer of 2016, our goal is to reach over one million responses to the question “What do you want?”
The results will form the largest ever showcase of women’s needs, wants and attitudes and will be used by our partners to make change happen. To participate simply answer in Appgree below.
Clicking on the left hand ‘Votes’ label lets you vote on a random sample of answers from other people. This is the really clever bit. Appgree’s algorithm presents everyone a different selection of answers so that every answer has a fair chance to gain support.
Clicking on the middle ‘Answer’ label lets you submit your own answer to the question ‘What do you want?’ This can be serious, funny or personal. It can be about any issue, cause, fear, hope or wish you have. Your really can tell us whatever you want. (Please note we do require you to vote before you answer – voting is an important part of the the process, which helps us find answers groups of women agree on.)
Clicking on the right hand ‘Results’ label let’s you see what answers are gaining support from other people at the moment. You can’t vote on these answers – this is to prevent people voting for an already popular answer or getting their friends or followers to all vote for their answer.
We know that some women are very happy to tell the world what they want, but others might prefer to take part anonymously. We have two options available below. Answer in the turquoise box to remain anonymous and in the purple one to have your name against your answer. We would recommend that anyone under the age of 18 answer anonymously.
We’re really keen to speak with women who took part 20 years ago to ask them what’s changed. If you think you sent in a postcard in 1996 please get in touch by emailing email@example.com
