Looking forward to speaking at this years Dalkey Book Festival on 17 June at this event
57. Unreasonable Women: the Equality War Goes On
Next year marks the 100 – year anniversary of women getting the vote in Ireland. Much has been achieved in terms of gender equality, but women are still fighting on many of the same issues and women are still a minority in government today. How important was and is female activism in effecting change and, 100 years after suffrage, where are we now with regards to equality? And what would Markiewicz make of it all?
With Senator Lynne Ruane, Margaret Ward, Nell Regan, Yassmin Abdel-Magied and Martina Devlin.
Great programme which runs from the 14th June inc Michael Ondaatje, Lionel Shriver, Paul Muldoon, Deborah Levy & many more http://www.dalkeybookfestival.org/
