Women of Newport was the brainchild of Kamila Jarczak back in 2019
As an adjunct to her inaugural and innovative photography exhibition she founded this community based group to showcase, connect, support and celebrate the wonderful diversity of women in our city.
We encourage individual and social entrepreneurial enterprise raising awareness amongst our communities to be the best we can possibly be.
We strive to empower women, groups and communities by promoting social inclusion and engaging in various projects making a difference for individuals by supporting positive ventures run by groups and businesses, connecting the city and wider region with the creativity, heritage and uniqueness that is available in Newport.

As a Brownie Leader and Girguiding Commissioner, Dawn works hard and is passionate about empowering our young Women of Newport, by interaction and co-operation with other youth organisations. In collaboration with Gwent Police cadets, Dawn’s Brownie Unit were raising awareness of White Ribbon Day and the prevention violence against girls and women.
Kamila as the resident photographer, along with other Women of Newport is on the supporting team of this annual event. This torch-lit festival march follows events of 1839 where John Frost and the Chartists bravely fought for the common voice to be heard and the right to vote. Women of Newport continue to champion local events for the benefit of our community. Light it up !
