[IFN] Feminist Activism in Ireland: Past, Present and Future

Dear supporter,

The IFN invites you to an all-day event on the theme ‘Feminist Activism in Ireland: Past, Present and Future’ to be held on Saturday, May 19th, in the Sean O’Casey Community Centre, Dublin 3.

Join us for discussions on successive feminist ‘waves’ in Ireland, and what they contributed and continue to contribute to gender equality in this country. We will hear from prominent feminist activists and scholars, such as Dr. Mary McAuliffe from the Women’s History Association of Ireland, and Dr. Margaret Ward, expert on the Irish suffrage movement.

The conference aims to create a dialogue between the different generations of feminists, and will place current campaigns in the context of the movement as a whole. While showcasing new, recently established feminist organisations, such as Cork Feminista, the conference will also assess the continuity of feminist activism over the decades. We hope that such a holistic reading of feminist activism in Ireland will prove fruitful for the future progression of the movement.

We hope to see you there!
