BBC News – Women Bishops & Social Media

Vicky discussed the Church of England’s forthcoming vote on ‘Women Bishops’ and the social media campaign that she and a few friends co-founded. The campaign, called “Yes2WomenBishops” gained much traction on Twitter, Facebook and through a website that enabled Anglicans to directly contact their General Synod Representative, to encourage them to vote “yes”.

The campaign got coverage in The Telegraph, The Times, The Guardian, The Independent, the Church of England Newspaper and a host of TV networks including BBC News.

The campaign showed a new generation leveraging digital media to try and start grassroots momentum in a very ancient, top-down institution.
