This will be followed by a bring and share tea, so please get baking, and then there will be a discussion on what we think about the natural areas that we have around Ferryside, and how these can be safeguarded and enhanced for future generation.  While this is going on there will also be a shadow puppet workshop for children.

It will be fun for everyone. The play has a strong environmental theme and will be followed by shadow puppet workshop for children, and a discussion on safeguarding the natural environment around Ferryside for others, with a view to producing a map of the area’s natural resources.

“What an amazing time we all had! The performance was just the right length.”

REMINDER: International Women’s Day on Sunday! #MoreThanMyBody

On March 8th we celebrate International Women‘s Day. We have taken this year‘s motto „Make It Happen“ to heart. Our campaign aims to fight sexism in Germany‘s biggest selling tabloid. Every day, women are reduced to their appearance and sexuality, suggesting that the female population has little more to offer than their boobs.

We call on you to help us take a stand against sexism in the media.

Many of you have already sent fantastic pictures! We are very impressed!

And there is still some time to take action if you have not done so yet:
Send us a photo of you holding a sign that points out what you contribute to society. It could be a hobby, a job, your family and friends… Whatever it is, tell us what defines you and show the world how diverse and awesome women are. Add the Hashtag #MoreThanMyBody.

You‘ll find an example of Sophia holding such a sign here


Dear men, please share our idea with the women in your lives and invite them to participate.
Send your photos to stopbildsexism@gmail.com or in a private message on Facebook.
We will collect all photos and post them on March 8th under the hashtag #MoreThanMyBody (and #MehrAlsMeinKörper, the German equivalent) on Twitter and Facebook. You may of course also share your photo yourself using #MoreThanMyBody @StopBildSexism (and #MehrAlsMeinKörper).

And no problem at all if you can’t take a picture! We would be very happy to receive your #MoreThanMyBody tweets even without picture – the more the merrier!

Be a part of this year‘s International Women‘s Day and #MakeItHappen! Show the world that women are so much more than their bodies.

Help us by sharing our campaign with all of your friends and family:


Stay tuned by liking us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/stopbildsexism) and following us on Twitter (@StopBildSexism)

All the best and thank you so much,
Alexia, Christiane, Johanna, Kim-Thy, Lisa, Kristina, Maja, Moritz, Olaf, Rebecca, Rene und Sophia
