NWCI Feminist Europe Campaign

Published: Thursday, July 18, 2019

In the lead up to the European Elections on May 24th, NWCI launched our #Feminist Europe campaign and held a series of public hustings events in Cork, Galway and Dublin.

250 people attended our European election events and over 150 people tuned in to watch the hustings online. 28 candidates signed up to our manifesto online and pledged their support and 21 attended our hustings events. In the lead up to the elections, we ran a high visibility social media campaign which included NWCI members and supporters from all over the country speaking about what a #FeministEurope would look like and what issues they would like to see their MEPs work on.

We received funding from the European Parliament to run this campaign and we will be following up with the elected MEPs who signed up to our manifesto in order to continue to advocate for NWCI policies at a European level.
