A day to celebrate women within Lancashire Constabulary

Female staff from Lancashire Constabulary will be celebrating International Women’s Day on Friday March 8th 2013.

International Women’s Day is a global day celebrating the economic, political and social achievements of women past, present and future.

Here at Lancashire Constabulary we want to celebrate the amazing work that all of our ladies do as well as raise awareness of the various female roles within the force.

A number of our female staff will be tweeting throughout the day to give an insight into a day in their life and to show what kind of things they have to deal with on a day to day basis. People can see the tweets by following ‘LancsPolice’ on Twitter.

There will also be several biographies about a number of our ladies on the Lancashire Police Facebook page.

We’ll be hosting a web chat with PC Claire Van Deurs Goss, famous for starring in the documentary “999: What’s Your Emergency?” at 11am on Friday so get your questions in for Claire.

The web chat can be found on the force website www.lancashire.police.uk/international-womens-day  and also via the Live Discussions app on the on the force’s Facebook page www.facebook.com/lancspolice.

Claire said: “I really wanted to get involved in International Women’s Day because I’m always keen to fly the flag for women and promote all the great work that our ladies do within Lancashire Constabulary. I think it’s so important to celebrate this global day and I’m really looking forward to chatting to people on the web chat and sharing my experiences of being a woman working in a largely male working environment.”
