With the Northern Ireland Assembly Election (AE22) happening this week – I thought it was important to analyse the different manifestos of the main political parties to see whether they have prioritised the needs of women.

The Women’s Policy Group (WPG) published our Key Election Asks based on some of the outstanding recommendations from our Feminist Recovery Plan (FRP).

I will now look at the election manifestos from Sinn Féin, UUP, SDLP, Alliance, Green Party, People Before Profit and the TUV. Please note – as the DUP only published a 5-point plan and not a full manifesto, a brief summary will be provided instead.
