What: Debate and Dicussion on 'Slutwalk'

Facebook Event: here.
Motion: Should there be a Dublin Slutwalk in 2012?
The first SlutWalk happened last year in Toronto in response to a Canadian police officer’s comment that women should avoid dressing like sluts in order to reduce the likelihood of being raped. Since then this movement has gone global, and with the marches set to become annual event, should we have a Dublin Slutwalk in 2012? The evening will kick off with a number of pro- and anti-Slutwalk speakers.
William O'Brien, Equality Officer, NUI Galway Students Union

The Irish Feminist Network is honoured to be screening the critically acclaimed documentary 'Miss Representation', by Jennifer Siebel Newsom in the Sugar Club on Wednesday, February 22nd, 2012. View event on Facebook.
This documentary explores the under-representation of women in positions of power and influence in America, and challenges the media's limited portrayal of what it means to be a powerful woman.
A lot of the issues raised by this film can be felt in Ireland, and after the screening we will hold a panel discussion and open Q&A with the audience.
We hope you'll join us at this event and share your opinion on the issues raised.
Please book your tickets early to avoid disappointment, as seating is limited. Tickets €10 available here.
