Event description

Description

The National Women’s Council of Ireland invites you to attend a members and friends meeting to discuss women in rural communities on Wednesday 28th February from 10:30am to 3:30pm in Longford Women’s Link.

In March, NWCI will have the opportunity to take part in the United Nations Commission on the Status of Women. The theme for 2018 is challenges and opportunities in achieving gender equality and the empowerment of rural women and girls. Ireland will chair the Commission this year. This is an important opportunity for you to raise issues around womens equality in rural communities.

On the day, speakers will provide an outline of developments in rural development across the country relevant to community organisations and opportunities for – and barriers to – women’s participation and full equality in rural communities. We will hear examples of successful engagement by women’s organisations and how we can work together to make women central to all areas of rural development.

Speakers will include:

  • Ellen O Malley Dunlop, Chairperson, National Women’s Council of Ireland
  • Tara Farrell, Deputy CEO, Longford Womens Link
  • Ann Irwin, National Coordinator, Community Work Ireland
  • Louise Lennon, Policy and Communications Officer, Irish Rural Link
  • Mary Carthy, Longford Federation President, Irish Country Womens Association

This event is being held in conjunction with Longford Women’s Link.

Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
