Women For Election
In 2011, just 15% of TDs elected at the general election in Ireland were women. This dismal number—25—was the highest number of women we had ever seen to date in our Parliament’s main chamber. Driven by the need to solve this problem we set up Women for Election to train, mentor and support women to get involved in politics and achieve our vision of an Ireland with balanced participation of women and men in political life. This work would not have been possible without The Ireland Funds’ support.
