Guerrilla Girls in Dublin

Anonymous Feminist Theatre Troupe Guerrilla Girls On Tour to hold
Press Conference and Photo Call: Friday, February 22nd, 11.15-12.15

Performances on Monday, February 25th, Trinity Player's Theatre at 6.30pm and 9.00pm

The Guerrilla Girls on Tour are "Changing the World, One Sexist City
at a Time" as their tagline goes, and Dublin is next on the list. The
American feminist theatre group, who all use the names of dead female
artists and wear gorilla masks during appearances, have adapted their
live performance Feminists Are Funny to address the past and present
of women in the Irish theatre. The Guerrilla Girls will hold a press
conference at 11.15 on Friday, February 22nd in the Elizabethan Room
of House Six, off Trinity's Front Square. A question and answer
session will be followed by a photo call in Front Square.
On the current state of feminism in Ireland, Guerrilla Girl on Tour
Coco Chanel comments: "I feel the abortion laws in Ireland are archaic
and was shocked to find that in Ireland divorce has only recently been
allowed by law. Is the God we worship in the United States more slack
than the God you worship in Ireland? I feel that the lack of
separation of church and state in Ireland has only hindered the
woman's movement and it is not God's fault".

Friends of RAG!

We're gathering nice photos of our RAG fans - thought this would be a good one to share! This photo shows Kate Bornstein and Barbara Carrellas who we met last weekend at the Lesbian Lives conference in UCD.

Demo at "WRC". Close The Rogue Agency!

Demo at "WRC". Close The Rogue Agency!


Following several successful pickets at the rogue crisis pregnancy agency, an action will be held on Saturday 16 February at 1pm. The rogue agency is at 50 Upper Dorset Street.

The agency, called "Women's Resource Centre" and also using the name "British Alternatives Pregnancy Services", is advertised as a pregnancy counselling agency. It subjects women in crisis pregnancies to psychological manipulation, misleading and deliberately lying about pregnancy and abortion services to prevent women from travelling for abortion services. The lies they tell clients are designed to force women to feel guilt and shame for even considering abortion as an option.
