UK Woman Up began as a grassroots one-off event in Carlisle in 2014. A group of women’s rights campaigners came together to celebrate the work of female activists.
Our first event in Carlisle was a huge success and lead to more in Stockton, Brighton, York and a two-day event in London in collaboration with several wonderful organisations.
We did two more events in Carlisle 2015 & 2018 before a hiatus due to work, kids, life, pandemics etc.
In 2022 a new team formed to create a vibrant event in Carlisle. The energy was phenomenal and it became clear that UK Woman Up should be more than just a one off event.
In 2023 we ran Woman Up Justice at the University of Cumbria. Shortly after we were granted charitable status. Charity No 1203943
Since then we have been working hard on building the foundations of the charity and we are bursting with amazing ideas.
Our next event, Woman Up Health will be in 2024. Watch this space.
