WCI – Limerick new report Addressing Sexism in Politics: Creating Safe, Inclusive and Accessible Political Spaces for Everyday Women
Women’s Collective Ireland – Limerick are delighted to launch their new report Addressing Sexism in Politics: Creating Safe, Inclusive and Accessible Political Spaces for Everyday Women, this report is a collaboration between Women’s Collective Ireland – Limerick and TUS research group EDGE.
Since 2019, WCI Limerick has been working specifically to strengthen and increase women’s participation and representation in local politics. In that time, they have worked with over 150 women and were instrumental in the establishment of the Limerick Women’s Caucus, the first of its kind a local level in the country. This work and the feedback they have been receiving from women led them to draft this report.
The report, and continuing work on the ground by WCI Limerick, aims to highlight and push back the barriers stopping women from entering politics and start creating safe, inclusive, accessible and welcoming political spaces where women can get involved in politics, campaigning and supporting a candidate they identify with to run for Local Election in Limerick in 2024.
