To commemorate our 10th Anniversary this year, Pink Shoe launched its exciting Time Capsule project. The Time Capsule was launched by Pink Shoe Founder Helene Martin Gee at the State Rooms of the Speaker’s House by kind permission of Mr Speaker, The Rt Hon John Bercow MP.
The multi-media Pink Shoe Time Capsule will highlight the progress women have made through history and celebrate the cross cultural, cross sectoral nature of the network.
It will pay tribute to women’s accomplishments, aims and aspirations. A virtual, online space to celebrate, inspire and commemorate as well as a physical vessel.
Accessible to people of all cultures, ages and abilities, The Time Capsule will bring together films, photographs, artwork, crafts, poems, songs, mementoes, texts, tweets, social media and audio messages.
The voices of women will truly be heard in the Pink Shoe Time Capsule. Women from across the UK and beyond are being asked to contribute – female MPs and Peers from all parties and the many women working in all aspects of Parliament; along with local officials, academics, artists, professionals, athletes, business owners, service women, third sector, community workers ….from school students to those in retirement, all are welcome to add their voices and make their mark on history.
The Time Capsule will be completed next year – 2018 the centenary of the Representation of the People Act, which gave some women the vote for the first time, and ‘buried’ somewhere in Parliament. We’re linking with the Vote100 Project which is curating an exciting series of innovative events in Parliament and across the UK that will celebrate this historic anniversary.
