People Before Profit will run over 40 candidates and the majority are female. The Anti-Austerity Alliance also have healthy number of female candidates.

Maybe you could give a platform to some of them women as well sometime?

Comment on Come and join us! by marcia flaherty http://www.womenforelection.ie/come-and-join-us/#comment-326 Fri, 31 May 2013 21:34:40 +0000 http://www.womenforelection.ie/?p=994#comment-326 Hi I would just like to say that until Enda kenny changes the working hours of politicians to more normal hours like 9 to 5 then this campaign wont work because Women put their family first. We have to get women in now so that their daughters in the future will also become politicians. I have noticed that most women that are in politics or business their mother was also so they have learned by seeing their mother. Like i said at the beginning until the hours are changed i dont believe it will work.

Comment on Participating in the Constitutional Convention by Portia http://www.womenforelection.ie/participatin-in-the-constitutional-convention/#comment-325 Tue, 30 Apr 2013 18:42:59 +0000 http://www.womenforelection.ie/?p=1010#comment-325 Have you noticed how women are expected to become equal to men?

This makes no sense at all as wombmen are the whole ones and males are incomplete.

So why are we women being asked to become half of what we already are?

Have we forgotten Irish women of old and their place in society before the Patriarchal Roman regime came and created an unequal society with males as superior owners of women and children.

Still we have in courts, secret courts, where judges etc are still trained to see “all Irish women as feeble minded”

This patriarchal system has not changed one iota.

So why would Irish women lower themselves to become equal to men?
