Women for Election inspires and equips women to succeed in Irish politics.
Women for Election is a not-for-profit, non-partisan organisation. Our mission is to inspire, support and equip women to succeed in politics.
We want to achieve balanced participation of women and men in politics because we believe that a diversity of voices in our politics will lead to more robust decisions, and help create a fairer, more inclusive and dynamic society.
Evidence shows that to bring about real change in gender balance in politics, a combination of hard measures such as quotas, and additional supports such as training programmes and women’s political networks, is required.
By training, mentoring and supporting women across Ireland, we can achieve 50% female representation in Irish politics.
Women for Election aims to fundamentally rebalance political power in Ireland, so that women lead side by side with men. We want women to become better representatives, and to be better represented.
