Online Campaign Dispels Stereotypes of the WI

A Cambridge branch of the WI set out to use social media to dispel some myths and stereotypes about the WI. “We know we aren’t pearl clutching over opinionated interfering old battle-axes, but it’s time we told the rest of the world that!”
 
Members were asked to  post a picture of themselves on Facebook on 1st October holding a sign saying “I am WI” and use the hash tag #iamwi.
 
The results are wonderful and inspiring and show that WI members come from all walks of life and have a wide range of interests.
 
Have a look here for the real face of the WI:
