In 2019 of the 37 County Councillors in Donegal only 3 are women, that’s a 8.1% representation, the highest it’s ever been. At the national political level two women since 1918 have ever represented Donegal in Dáil Éireann. We need change.
This year’s International Women’s Day Theme is ‘Balance for Better’, it is a call-to-action for driving gender balance across the world. While also asking people how will you help make a difference?
In honour of this day NCCWN Donegal Women’s Network in association with 50:50 North West invite you to come Celebrate International Women’s Day 2019 with us on Thursday 7th March in Donegal central library, Letterkenny 10am-1pm.
We’ll be discussing equal representation, chatting to female County Councillors and to women who will be running in the upcoming May Local Elections. We’ll also be joined by Historian Dr Angela Byrne who will be talking about the first woman in Donegal to be Elected as a councillor.
This will be an interactive and informative event, refreshments will be provided and all are welcome.
