International Women's Day - 8/3/2018

To mark International Women's Day, Irish MEPs give their reflections on the significance of IWD in a series of short video clips.

This year the context is particularly poignant because it is the 100th anniversary of (some) women in Ireland winning the right to vote and stand as candidates for national elections. 

The proximity of the 2019 European elections is an obvious additional dimension when reflecting on the role of women in politics in Ireland.
