Martina Fitzgerald political journalist and author of ‘Madam Politician’ on Thursday 6.30pm, 7th March 2019 in Regent House
over Front Gate in Trinity. Event kindly sponsored by McCann FitzGerald
Topics For Discussion
What difference do women bring to discussions, debate and policymaking? What stops women from getting involved in politics and should they ‘feel the fear and do it anyway’? These will be some of the topics the panel will talk about.
We will also be asking if women get energised from being able to make a difference
to people’s lives. Another area we will be exploring is quotas. Are quotas
working and what still needs to change?
Hearing Women’s Voices on Air – TV Radio and Social Media
How can women cope in situations where they are talked over at meetings, shouted down in debates on radio and television. We will be asking if broadcasters have a role to play and getting expert advice from journalist and best selling author of Madam Politician Martina Fitzgerald as well as our panelist politicians.
