The All-island Women's Forum provides a space for women from across the island for cross border cooperation and dialogue.

Led by the National Women’s Council (NWC), The All-island Women’s Forum aims to address underrepresentation of women and further develop women’s role in peacebuilding and civic society. Consisting of 28 members, 14 from the North and 14 from the South, the Forum aims to build sustainable North South links, provide a space for marginalized communities, and build better understanding and inter-community links.

The Forum represents a contribution by the National Women’s Council to the Irish Government’s Shared Island initiative in the Department of an Taoiseach, by enhancing civil society links and supporting engagement by women, across communities and traditions on the island, on issues of common concern.

The forum is funded by the Department of Foreign Affairs Reconciliation Fund
