Where Next for Women in NI?  – Tuesday 6th June at 12.00pm at Parliament Buildings, Stormont

Women played a unique role in achieving the Good Friday Agreement, both at the negotiation table and through their work in families, communities, and organisations. Much has changed since 1998, but much still remains to be achieved. Women still want to engage with policy and decision making and are keen to make their voices heard to create an inclusive, equal future for all.

This event will celebrate the role of women in achieving the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement and its role for women and girls. It will also look towards the future, to explore what is needed to fully embed gender equality in both society and structures, strengthen women’s leadership and create a Northern Ireland that works for women and girls.

The event will hear from women who took part in the negotiations, as well as women peacebuilders, grassroots women and young people. Speakers will reflect on the Agreement, its impact for women and girls, and share their priorities for what is needed now to create an equal and sustainable future for all.

The event is sponsored by Sinéad McLaughlin MLA, Chair of the NI Assembly All Party Group on Women, Peace and Security, with Connie Egan MLA and Claire Sugden MLA
