‘Make it Happen – Stop Violence against Women’

Sunday 8th of March marked International Women’s Day during which people across the world celebrate achievements and highlight gaps in women’s rights.

Pavee Point delivered a thematic event to launch its International Women’s Day poster 2015 and engaged in a social media campaign to highlight violence against women as a violation of women’s human rights.

Insights by Traveller women – Cathleen McDonagh Exchange House, Brigid Casey ITM, and Kathleen Lawrence Pavee Point -explored some of the issues and experiences of multiple discrimination and domestic and sexual violence that Traveller women face. The day built solidarity between Traveller and settled women and men through workshop activities.
