On March 8th, 2018 NIRWN celebrated International Women’s Day with 100 of our members in attendance.
We marked the beginning of the centenary of Suffrage. We officially launched our ‘Rural Voices’ Research Report which highlights the inequalities and challenges still faced by rural women across NI. We heard from the innovative S.E.W. Project for women; we heard from Equality Commissioner Helen Ferguson about the work the Equality Commission NI are doing to advance women and we learned about funding opportunities and enjoyed interactive entertainment finishing with a light lunch.
