85. IWD 2021 – The Future is Feminist

This is the second Reboot Republic special podcast in partnership with the National Women’s Council of Ireland for International Women’s Day 2021. In this podcast Orla O Connor, Director of the NWCI, hosts a panel discussion with Ailbhe Smyth (Feminist Activist), Tessa Collins (Pavee Point), Jennifer Okeke (Immigrant Council of Ireland), and Susan Lohan (Adoption Rights Alliance).

The panel highlight the key issues for women’s rights in Ireland and how to work collectively to bring about the needed change. They discuss women in COVID, and ask why were women’s voices not represented, and that women have carried a disproportionate burden of the care work. They highlight marginalised women such as Traveller Women’s experiences of discrimination, housing and education, migrant women and racism, gender based violence. They advocate a feminist movement that leaves no woman behind, a social economy that values care over profit, and call for solidarity across society for women, and to address the scars of inequality highlighted in COVID.
