The Minister of State with special responsibility for Equality, Immigration and Integration, David Stanton TD, will host a public consultation meeting on the forthcoming National Women’s Strategy on Monday 19 December at 2pm in the Imperial Hotel in Cork.
Commenting on the public consultation, Minister Stanton said:
“We have made some advances to improve the lives of women and girls in Ireland, but it is clear that a lot more needs to be done. I strongly urge members of the public, women’s organisations and organisations in related fields in Cork, Munster and surrounding areas to take an active part in this consultation to inform Government policy.
At this public meeting we invite you to tell the Government what you see as the priorities for women and girls in Ireland up to 2020.”
