Together we can make a change
The Women’s Institute is democratic and member-led, and the resolutions process is unique in putting members at the heart of decisions about our campaign activity. Every issue that they campaign on stems directly from a resolution put forward by members and adopted at the Annual Meeting. WI members have a unique opportunity to turn a concern into a national campaign every year, backed by the whole of the WI. This year we were thrilled that the Women's Institute voted for the resolution ‘A call to increase awareness of the subtle signs of ovarian cancer’.
Cary Wakefield, Chief Executive of Ovarian Cancer Action, said: “UK-wide symptom awareness has a vital role to play in our ambition to improve ovarian cancer survival. The WI has a legacy of affecting long-lasting and meaningful change, and we are thrilled to be working together. Collectively we can help both women today and for generations to come.”
