About the All-island Women's Forum

Led by the National Women’s Council (NWC), the forum consists of 14 members from the South and 14 members from Northern Ireland. The Women’s Forum aims to address underrepresentation of women and further develop women’s role in peacebuilding and civic society. The Women’s Forum will also support building sustainable North South links, provide a space for marginalised communities and build better understanding and inter-community links. The forum will meet virtually on a monthly basis to identify areas that can be worked on a collaborative basis. Find out more about the forum.

Make sure to tune in on our Facebook Page at 11am on Thursday 27th January to watch the meeting live.
