The IFN will be speaking on the Equality Budgeting Campaign at this seminar. Come and join us to explore the following questions:
Are women bearing the brunt of the recession? Are cuts to public services impacting on women more? What are the implications of further public spending cuts for women?
Increasing evidence is emerging that the recession is having a disproportionate impact on women internationally and in Irish society. Yet, public discussions and policy development and discourse about the recession and its impacts are not informed by any type of gender analysis. The National Women's Council, in association with TASC, has identified the need to highlight the disproportionate impact of the current recession on women and to inform public debate and policy development.
Speakers will include: Pauline Conroy and Ursula Barry, authors of Ireland 2008-2012 Untold Story of the Crisis - Gender, Equality and Inequalities and Thora Thorsdottir, author of Gender (in)equality in recession and recovery: the case of Iceland (forthcoming).
Venue: NWCI, 4th Floor, 2/3 Parnell Square East, Dublin 1
Programme - Bearing the Brunt
Panel response and discussion will be included.
The seminar is free of charge but places are strictly limited so early booking is advised.
