Commitment to Action

Tackling Underrepresentation of Women in Irish politics

Commitment by

The American Ireland Fund

In 2013, The American Ireland Fund committed to provide strategic and fundraising advice to Women for Election as it scales up its activities and aims to raise the number of female candidates running for political office in Ireland to 25 percent by the 2014 elections. Ireland is ranked 109th out of 149 countries for female political representation and yet, at 15 percent, female representation has never been higher. Enriching the diversity of voices in Irish politics will lead to more robust decisions, and help create a fairer, more inclusive and dynamic society, better equipped to tackle social issues.
