Posted by & filed under Uncategorized.

Are you a woman between the ages of eighteen to thirty? If so, register as an equality activist today. You will receive: • Workshops on practical activism skills such as P.R., political lobbying, social media and direct action. • Seminars and information on equality budgeting. • Your transport costs covered. • A chance to meet other like-minded young women. • An opportunity to make a real difference!

This means that any government budget decisions must not unfairly impact any marginalised group in society. How do I sign up? There are forty spaces available for Equality Activists. Email irishfeministnetwork.org Our First Event. Our first event will be a seminar on approaches to equality in policy-making.
