To celebrate International Women's Day we're offering a free copy of our special one-off publication 'Get into Climbing' to every woman who becomes a BMC member during March.

Make It Happen was the theme of this year's International Women's Day (8 March), so if you've been pondering about joining the BMC for a while, why not 'make it happen' today? You'll get all the usual great membership benefits plus a FREE fantastic bumper magazine Get into Climbing for beginners and improvers worth £5 (RRP).

All around the world, International Women's Day represents an opportunity to celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality.

At present only 25% of the BMC's 77,000 strong membership is female, and we want to do something about that! This special BMC membership offer is in support of This Girl Can campaign to help women get more active and close the gap between men and women's particpation in sport. It is available to all women joining as BMC Individual members or those taking out family membership during March 2015.

Want to try out climbing this weekend? A number of climbing walls are running special taster sessions for women this weekend in association with International Women's Day and This Girl Can. Check out the details here.  If you're new to climbing read about getting started here.

Not a BMC member? Join today:

Individual BMC membership costs just £31.45 for a full year, but if you sign up by Direct Debit you'll pay just half that for your first years membership, and get a FREE magazine!

Apply online today by Direct Debit and save 50% on your first years membership.

The small print:
Offer only available to new female members joining between 06 and 31 March 2015.
One free copy will be sent to each new family membership taken out during this time.

Find out about the full range of BMC membership benefits.

Take a look at our special edition magazine for new climbers Get into Climbing.  Buy your copy from the BMC shop for just £5 (£3 for BMC members).
