Women’s Spaces is an innovative programme strengthening women’s capacity to take their rightful place as leaders in society. The project builds women’s skills and shares tools needed to engage effectively in peacebuilding, community development and public life, and aims to create new opportunities for women of all backgrounds to share their stories to shape future work and a future Northern Ireland.
Women in Northern Ireland continue to be sidelined in peace building. Women are also underrepresented in public life, with very limited increase in women’s representation in recent years and women’s views rarely included in policy and decision making. Women’s Spaces is a three year project designed to begin changing these long standing challenges.
Women’s Spaces is delivered by a consortium involving Women’s Platform, Women’s Resources and Development Agency, NI Rural Women’s Network and Women’s Support Network.
