NWCI Guide to lobbying for pension equality

Published: Tuesday, August 29, 2017

This resource was developed by the National Women’s Council of Ireland (NWCI) following engagement over many years with women negatively impacted by the pensions system and a series of workshops with women in Kerry and Cork affected by pension inequality. Both the workshops and this resource were made possible by the support of the Community Foundation for Ireland’s Older Persons’ Fund 2016. NWCI is concerned that the current pension debate has largely ignored the needs of women and it is our intention to ensure that fairness and equality for women are central to any government policy on pensions. We invite you to join us in mobilising against the indirect discriminate against women in the Irish State pensions system. We hope that you will find this resource useful in supporting women and women’s groups in your local community to call for change in the pension system. If you would like more copies or require any further information, please do not hesitate to get in touch on 01 679 0100 or email catherinel@nwci.ie.
