Ways to help
Here are a few ways you can help the campaign!
- Lobby a politician (Twitter)
Check if a Parliamentarian is on Twitter (lists of MEPs on Twitter here, here and here), and send them 140 characters telling them to back a Gender Balanced Commission. Please include the hash tag #gbc09 and a link to http://www.genderbalancedcommission.eu/
- Lobby a politician (Facebook)
If you’re a friend or a fan of a politician on Facebook then post something on their wall with a link to http://www.genderbalancedcommission.eu/ You can also back us by supporting us on Facebook.
- Lobby a politician (any other means)
E-mail, phone calls, meetings are also good! Find your way to get the message across!
- Suggest alternative female politicians for the team
Our list of potential female Commissioners is in no way complete – please do suggest more in the comments form on the page, and if you can write a small biography about the person that’s even better!
- Become a supporter
We want names of politicians, bloggers and twitterers who back the campaign. If you back us then send us a message and we’ll link to you from the supporters list in the sidebar of the site.
- Add a banner to your site
At the bottom of this page you can find some graphical banners – right click one of these, choose ‘Save to disk’ and then use the graphic in your website or blog – and remember to link to http://www.genderbalancedcommission.eu/
