As part of Nollaig Na mBan, Dr Vicky Conway of Policed hosted a special Live Online Podcast with a great panel and a super engaged audience. The guests included Education Lecturer, Ciara Reilly, UCD Ast Prof Orla Hegarty, St James’s Hosp. Dr Clíona Ní Cheallaigh and TCD Professor, Aoife McLysaght. You’ll also hear from Anne Marie Quilligan on Traveller deprivation during Covid-19, Dr Sharon Lambert on the need to organise and Consultant Paediatric Radiologist, Gabrielle Colleran on the ways the workload falls disproportionately on women. The panel and audience discuss how the government’s approach is ignoring scientific knowledge and how schools have led the way. We discuss so many of the ways that this pandemic is hitting women in particular, and look at the impact in different communities, but also how we can move forward compassionately. A brilliant hour.
