Sunday Independent (Ireland) - - Presidential Election -

2018 has been a piv­otal year for women’s equal­ity in Ire­land and glob­ally. It is 100 years since women were first al­lowed to vote here and the Eighth Amend­ment was re­moved fol­low­ing a cam­paign by women and women’s or­gan­i­sa­tions through­out the coun­try. Glob­ally, the #MeToo move­ment has high­lighted the ex­pe­ri­ences of dis­crim­i­na­tion and ha­rass­ment faced by women and girls. Build­ing on this re­newed in­ter­est and en­ergy, the Na­tional Women’s Coun­cil of Ire­land asked the pres­i­den­tial can­di­dates to share their views on women’s equal­ity in Ire­land
