Women Beyond the Dail: Supporting Local Caucus

Published: Friday, February 07, 2020

We recently held an exploratory discussion with women councillors and women’s community groups on developing local caucuses. Members of the Women’s Parliamentary Caucus also joined the discussion to share their insights of being members of the national caucus. Limerick Women’s Network and Limerick women councillors shared their experience of setting up a local caucus. 

Participants then had the opportunity to talk about the values and benefits of local caucuses and to think about how it might work locally. We developed a short guide to support their establishment of Local Caucus in different areas.  

You can download a copy of the guide here.
