Gender Equality IV - Join Women on the bridge

Tomorrow, March 8, 2011 will mark the 100th anniversary of 'International Women’s Day'. If you want, you can join thousands of women, children and men who will be building bridges of peace and are calling for an end to violence against women in areas of conflict, as part of the exciting, global Join Me on the Bridge Campaign.

Google participates in the event inviting women to join people coming together on bridges all over the world, from the Millennium Bridge in London, the Brooklyn Bridge in New York City, the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, to the Grand Barriere Bridge joining Rwanda and Congo to show your support for women's causes and celebrate women's achievements.

Please see Google's International Women's Day site. For more info on Women for Women International, see the Women For Women website.

The Event Toolkit includes assets that you can take with you to the event such as hand held banners or use to promote it such as online banners or posters.

Anyone can attend a bridge event, regardless of where you are in the world, as you can attend either physically or virtually! 
There are 3 easy ways to show your support;
  1. Physically attend the bridge event nearest to you, simply search on the map to find an existing event.
  2. Virtually attend any event on Street View simply by 'checking in' on map on the day (March 8th)
  3. Organize your own event! You can easily create your own event from the map itself, and the rest of this site provides information and great creative materials to promote your event and cause on the day.
