Ways to help

Here are a few ways you can help the campaign!

  1. 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/
  2. 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.
  3. Lobby a politician (any other means)
    E-mail, phone calls, meetings are also good! Find your way to get the message across!
  4. 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!
  5. 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.
  6. 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/

Some criticism arises when this is perceived as a pure “gender power issue”.
I think it should be stressed in the message that there are many women that are -at least if not more- as prepared, skilled, and intelligent as some of the men candidates (even more than some other men). Therefore the women we claim to be appointed are extremely capable women, that should not be disregarded.
