WRDA contributes to BFN discussion

5th September 2014


Belfast Feminist Network has thanked WRDA for its contribution to an excellent discussion on Wednesday 27th August in the Realta Civic and Social Space. WRDA’s Isobel Loughran (pictured) joined Clare Bailey from Green Party NI and Bronagh Hinds, founder of the Women's Coalition and DemocraSHE, in addressing a BFN call for evidence submission meeting regarding female political participation in Northern Ireland and MLA Jims Well's amendment to the Justice Bill, which could limit local abortions even further.

Both submissions were informed by those attending. Isobel provided an overview of the particular barriers women in local communities face in accessing leadership positions and the need to ensure that women moving into political leadership are representative of women’s diversity in Northern Ireland society.

Learn about BFN's work by visiting its Facebook page. A petition has been launched against Mr Well's abortion amendment. You can sign your name here.
