Join Choice Ireland, the RAG collective and the Lashback collective to celebrate International Womens Day
1pm Sunday March 8th 2009, International Women's Day
Meet at the The Custom House, Custom House Quay, Dublin 1
On March 8th 2008 over 150 people took to the streets to take part in the first Feminist Walking Tour of Dublin to mark International Women's Day. Following the enormous success of last year's tour, we are once again stepping out to tell the often forgotten stories of the Dublin women who have shaped the world we live in.
"The tour will tell the stories of women throughout our history from Granuaile to the women of the Ladies Land League and Irish Women Workers’ Union to today's women activists who work to reduce poverty and exclusion in our city," comments Sinead Ahern
Commenting further Anne Lynott says "The walking tour is an educational and entertaining way to celebrate the courage and achievements of women past and present and an ideal way to mark International Women's Day."
The Feminist Walking Tour will follow a new route this year and will incorporate different aspects of women in Dublin’s history. The tour will finish with a social lunch where soup and sandwiches will be provided.
There will be a free booklet to accompany the tour with a map and information about each stop.
This event is free of charge and is open to all ages and genders. Please contact us if you have any accessibility or other needs.
