Join the All-island Women's Forum for this panel discussion on the impact of Covid-19 on women on our shared island.

About this event

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 immense and disproportionate impact of Covid-19 has been felt by women across Ireland, this panel discussion brings together speakers North and South to discuss the impact of the pandemic.

Speakers include;

Sarah Mason, CEO Women's Aid Federation Northern Ireland

Rachel Powell, Women's Sector Lobbyist, Women's Resource and Development Agency

Linda Kelly, Founder of Women Ascend and member of Covid Women's Voices

Assumpta Kelly, Coordinator, North Leitrim Women's Centre

Chaired by Aoife Moore, Political Correspondent, Irish Examiner

The webinar will be supported by ISL Interpreters.

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

Organiser of The Impact of Covid-19 on Women

The National Women's Council (NWC) is the national representative organisation for women in Ireland.

The ambition of the National Women’s Council is an Ireland where every woman enjoys true equality and no woman is left behind. This ambition shapes and informs our work, and, with our living values, how we work. We are a movement-building organisation rooted in our membership, working on the whole island of Ireland. We are also part of the international movement to protect and advance women’s and girls’ rights.

Our purpose is to lead action for the achievement of women’s and girls’ equality through mobilising, influencing, and building solidarity.
