31 March, 3pm to 6pm
The general election of December 1918 saw women in Ireland voting for the first time due to the suffragette movement and activism of women. 2018 is the 100th anniversary of women’s right to vote and of the election of Ireland’s first female member of parliament – Countess Markiewicz.
To celebrate this, and in keeping with Rua Red’s programme which reflects the organisations interests with place, politics and people we will host an all-female panel featuring some of the foremost female activists in Ireland who have instigated fundamental change through their outspoken campaigns. These four women will explore the role of activism in social and political change through their own personal experiences.
The panel will include activists Bernadette Devlin McAliskey, Lian Bell, Cecily Brennan and Grace Dyas.
Tickets: €5 / €2.50
