Women Making History - NWCI’s AGM Morning Event

The resounding Yes vote on May 25th 2018 to repeal the 8th Amendment from the Constitution marked a key moment in Irish history and in the struggle for equality for women and girls.

NWCI’s Women Making History event on the morning of our Annual General Meeting will be a unique opportunity to reflect on this momentous vote and on the decade long campaign that led up to this significant achievement for women’s equality. Speakers will discuss the role of women as leaders of the campaign and the important contribution of the voices and experiences of women, in particular young women, in bringing about this change. It will also be an opportunity to look ahead and discuss the implementation of legislation for abortion care for women in Ireland.

Speakers will include:

  • Simon Harris TD, Minister for Health 
  • Ailbhe Smyth, Co-Director of Together for Yes and Convenor of the Coalition to Repeal the 8th Amendment
  • Linda Kavanagh, Abortion Rights Campaign 
  • Síona Cahill, Union of Students Ireland
