Launch of the Women Rising Manifesto by the National Women's Council of Ireland, 26 March 2014
On Wednesday 26 March, the European Parliament will host the launch by the National Women's Council of Ireland (NWCI) of their pre-Election promotion campaign – the Women Rising Manifesto. The European Parliament and the NWCI believe more equal representation leads to better decision-making and are promoting actions to ensure gender equality and that women’s voices are being heard. The launch takes place at 9.30 am in the Parliament offices, 43 Molesworth Street, Dublin 2. For further information: call (01)8787248 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
The European Parliament and the NWCI will also host similar events in Cork on 12 April and in Cavan on 1 May. The events will feature speakers that highlight the current issues that require attention at local and European level in areas such as violence against women, economic equality, health and reproductive rights, public services and building more equal and inclusive communities.
