People Like Me: Voices Like Mine - Women's Voices in Democracy


The Europe Direct Centre's in Clones and Ballinasloe will hold a discussion on democracy and the importance of women’s voices being heard in the decision-making process. This event supported the Conference on the Future of Europe. We want to hear your thoughts on what the EU does well, what it should do and what it needs to do better to make it more equal and democratic. After a brief introduction from the panel, there will be a panel discussion, followed by a Q&A session in which the panelists will respond to your thoughts and questions. We invite you to submit your questions in advance by emailing them to eudirect@monaghancoco. Questions asked and issues raised during the Q&A session will be highlighted to the European Union (EU) as part of our reporting process, so this is the perfect opportunity to raise any concerns or make suggestions about how the EU can better support women's participation in the democratic process.

The discussion panel will include • Maria Walsh, MEP, Uruemu Adejinmi • Mayor of Longford • Dr. Michelle Maher, See Her Elected • Lorraine Cunningham, NCCWN Blayney Blades. The Event will be moderated by Maeve McCormack. Contributing to European Democracy ensures that you are making your voice heard.
