The NWCI has recently made a submission to the Constituency Commission. It is written by Eoin Murray of the NWCI and Claire McGing of NUIM. To date it is the only submission which deals with the issue of women in politics.
In it they focus on two areas:
– Larger constituencies represent the best chance for women to get elected;
– Reducing the number of deputies will increase workloads and thus impact negatively on making politics an attractive career option for women.
Please share it widely. Questions should be directed toward the authors.
