Feminists are everywhere - NWCI AGM Morning Event

Join us for our annual discussion on current issues around women’s equality in Ireland! Our AGM morning event "Feminists are everywhere" will feature feminists in a range of areas and sectors, including feminist leaders in advocacy and campaigning, the media, in business and in the community.

Speakers will discuss the challenges women still face in order to become leaders and outline what needs to happen to make Ireland a more equal society. We expect the event to have a strong vibrant discussion with our members and friends in the audience and a large online engagement with a diverse range of women as was the case in previous years.

Speakers will include:

  • Frances Fitzgerald, Tánaiste and Minister for Justice and Equality
  • Gráinne Healy, Social Justice Campaigner
  • Sarah Duku, Cairdre
  • Eileen Flynn, Irish Traveller Movement
  • Claire McGettrick, Justice for Magdalenes Research
  • Trish Long, Disney
  • Frances Byrne, NWCI Chairperson
  • Orla O'Connor, Director, NWCI

Sarah McInerney from Newstalk Radio will chair the event.

At the event, NWCI will give an award for Outstanding Feminist Leadership and also honour women and children who were incarcerated in religiously run, State funded institutions in Ireland.

Please note: This event is free for NWCI members. The fee for non-members, payable at the door, is: 15 Euros (waged), 10 Euros (unwaged)
